Catalogue Note

‘Suddenly everything returned to order and beauty in his series of harbour views...they demonstrate clarity and precision à la Canaletto and a remarkable compositional construction, testifying to an undeniable pleasure in painting… the execution of the rusty-brown boats exemplifies great mastery of drawing and colour. The painter is in full possession of his art and delights in demonstrating his virtuosity’.

- John Sillevis, Bernard Buffet 1928-1999, 2008, Plomelin, pp. 45-46
