Before leaving Barfleur, I would like to present you this small house that has been occupied by the painter Paul Signac between 1932 and 1935. Nothing has changed since that time and the "poilu" soldier commemorating the First World War still guards the place.
Paul Signac, together with Pissarro and Seurat is known as one of the scientific impressionist. He developed the so-called "pointilliste" technique... a pixelisation of our reality well before the advent of the digital era. No doubt he would have appreciated digital photography.
Signac was born in Paris, but lived in Britanny, knew Van Gogh in Arles and painted several times the port of St Tropez.
It is here in Barfleur that he came to paint boats and sails at the end of his life.

Etais-tu en Normandie recement? J'ai tombe sur tes photos de la region en regardant la gallerie principal. Une jolie composition qui met bien en valeur les ellemets. Je pense qui pour cette photo au contraire de celle de la Catedral uma correction de perspective pour le batiment au fond serai desirable. Belle lumiere et couleurs. Quel boneur le beau temps!
As-tu de suggstion des endroits a visiter dans la regions. J'aurra peut-etre l'opportunite d'y passer quelques mois donc tous les suggestion sont les bienvenue.
