So LEAM, how did you get involved in this FFS project?
It was the curious nature of this artist Jean-Baptist Olive, I had read several biographies about his life and they all spoke of his “passion for light” and his “conservative attitude”. At first I thought he was just a craftsman, a classic master of oil painting on canvas. A more thrilling story unfolded in that he tried to do it in Paris and was snubbed by the hipsters of the time; the impressionist painters, yes, that sounds a bit pathetic. Anyway, the man from the south continues to paint from sketches and memories the famous oily and radiant southern sea, while sitting on the banks of the Seine, a brown river with grey shadows . Any questions?
