One of the paintings described as “more than a match for anything in the Musee d’Orsay“, by the  acclaimed Gaillac historian and author Alain Soreano, when Alain introduced the inaugural showing of this ‘Gaillac Collection’ at the Maison Culturale, Ville de Gaillac, an exhibition during December 2016.

Around Gaillac people are working hard to develop these distinctive wines and their markets.

This painting was inspired by and has it’s roots firmly in the beautiful capricious river Tarn and the old quarters of Gaillac.

The town was a busy port, at one time over 200 barges were registered with the ‘Captainerie’ as built and maintained at the port.

The origins of the port and it’s trades are pre Roman; during Roman times the principal exports were pottery, wines, grains and timber.

The location is one very familiar to me, enjoyed on many varied occasions, often with friends.

This painting was a direct development of the ‘plien aire’ study “Gaillac, the best route to arrive…” which was kept in the studio while this picture was composed and created so contributed significantly to the colouring.
