Guests of the boutique hotel Villa le Barone are talented: they are authors, musicians, painters, sculptors!
Today we would like to celebrate Catherine–Ambroselli de Bayser who is at the origin of, and also the counsellor of the exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris “George Desvallières , la Peinture corps et âme” that can be seen until 17 July. After 20 years of research, she published in February the “Catalogue raisonné” of the artist, of which she is the granddaughter.
One of the founders of the Salon d’Automne, a painter untied to any school, George Desvallières defends the Fauvists, the Cubists and the Decorative Arts,
all before leading, during the First World War, his battalion of soldiers in the Vosges.
Upon his return, he gives new life to religious art by creating the Ateliers d’Art Sacré.
Catherine Ambroselli de Bayser directed the preparation of the “catalogue raisonné”, listing the entire output of George Desvalières, and providing an inventory of his works that is as complete as possible. The catalogue presents the 2675 works of the painter in a chronological order that enables the reader to follow the events of his life and his development as an artist.
