« Quatre pommes » : Four apples are depicted here, in this oil on canvas by Jacques Ousson. He chooses to paint his subject in shades of grey.
Born in 1937, Jacques Ousson took the « cours Charpentier » and was then admitted to the « École des Métiers d’art », (School of Arts and Crafts). 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.
