« Cascade dans la Canche aux Loups », oil on wood, 28 x 21 cm - Jacques Ousson, 2001 (11)
This oil on wood painting entitled « Cascade dans la canche aux Loups » was painted by "the" painter of the Loire Jacques Ousson in 2001. The artists depicts a landscape before a storm. The charged sky, of an anthracite grey colour contrasts with the soft green of the vegetation.
Born in 1937, Jacques Ousson followed the « cours Charpentier » and was then admitted to the « École des Mériers d'Art ». From then on, he continued his pictorial research on his own. In 1976, he met the patron Pierre Levy and then lived in Madrid at the Casa de Velasquez from 1977 to 1979. He then returned to France, to Ousson-sur-Loire, so dear to his heart and from which he takes his pseudonym.
