18th Century French Screen with Recent Painting by Jacques Lamy This fabulous three paneled screen has paintings of a maritime scene as viewed through three interior draped windows, by the famed French Artist Jacques Lamy. The two side panels show peninsulas of rocky shorelines and trees with boats and sailboats on the water. The center panel has an island with rocky shorelines upon which small edifices are built. Large boulders are at the right forefront. In the distance, a multi-mast tall ship and sailboats are sailing to their destination. The draped interior windows have tassels hanging from their top centers and walls with a chair rail and baseboard are beneath. Lamy developed his signature style that merges the centuries old technique of buon fresco with modern materials. After spreading a layer of plaster over stretched burlap, the artist paints directly on the damp plaster. The paint combines with the plaster resulting in the elegant, translucent finish that characterizes Classical frescoes. Artist: This magnificent three paneled screen has been masterfully painted by the famed French artist, Jacques Lamy. Born in Paris in 1946 and raised in the heart of an idyllic French countryside near the Loire Valley, Jacques Lamy began painting at a early age. He completed his formal artistic training at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Superieur des Arts Decoratifs (Paris) in 1971. While there, he received the highest peer recognition in European Arts, the coveted Prix de Rome award for painting. In addition to his paintings, Lamy has painted numerous large scale trompe d'oeil and classical murals using his novel fresco technique. The artist frequently exhibits his paintings and his sophisticated renderings have become popular favorites at leading American and European galleries. Condition: Rubs and nicks to 18th C. frame.
