Catalogue Note

A native of Bordeaux, André Lhote depicted its bustling port throughout his artistic career. The present work is an early Fauve example rendered in scintillating colours. In 1955 Lhote would go back to this theme depicting a 7-metre long mural titled La Gloire de Bordeaux painted for the Faculty of Medicine in Bordeaux.
