GASTON BARRET (French / 1910-1991)

Gaston Barret earned a high reputation from illustrating fine limited edition books. Barret was attracted to erotic subjects (as our colour lithographs inspired by de Maupassant’s Maison Tellier, drypoints inspired by Sade's Justine, or hand-coloured drypoints for the erotic classic Un Été dans la Campagne, show), but he was also exceptionally talented at depicting country scenes, animals, and birds. In this category we also have both colour lithographs, drypoints and etchings. Many of Gaston Barret's landscapes and studies of rural life are set in the Sologne, the lost domain of Alain-Fournier and poacher’s paradise of Genevoix; others capture the magic of the sun-drenched south. Gaston Barret deserves to be remembered as one of the finest French draughtsmen of the twentieth century.
