Friday Calm: Nancy Delouis

I am excited to have found this wonderful new artist, born in Limoges in 1941, with her colors and subjects reminiscent of Bonnard—who is, she says, one of the artists who has most influenced her art.  (Further, her mother was an art teacher, and her grandfather was Auguste Rodin's cousin.)

"Delouis celebrates the role of the woman at the very soul of the home, whether at her washing, in the kitchen or sewing, all set in an atmosphere of peace, gentleness and beauty."

  1. I took a look at some of her paintings after I read your post.
    I like her colours. What she expresses through painting reminds me of what Emily Dickinson expresses through poetry.

  2. That's such a great observation—thanks, Jay.
