Catalogue Note

The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by the Galerie Maurice Garnier.

"I took Bernard to meet [my parents] in 1950 a few months after we met. This is when Bernard discovered La Rochelle. He then had an exhibition of paintings of ports where he showed his pictures of La Rochelle."
