« Le Bec d'Allier », oil on canvas, 24 x 41 cm - Jacques Ousson, 2000 (30)
With this landscape, Jacques Ousson succeeds in restoring us the soft light of the end of the day. This stretch of water is magnified by the pink and blue hues of the sky, which is reflected in it.
The artist, passionate about the Loire region, chose to immortalize its body and green landscapes for years. Light and colour occupy a predominant place in his work.
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.
