Delighted to see the St. Martin-based artist Francis Eck and his lovely wife Sylviane this week. They’re avid golfers, and love the beautiful course at Cuisinart Golf Resort. Delighted also that he brought the gallery some new works – a superb landscape named “Vierges Nature”, which I have to translate to “Virgin Nature”. If anyone knows of a different translation, please let me know! The other, keeps in his figurative theme, and depicts a striking piano player. “Pianiste” is a gorgeous monochrome, like so many of his recent landscapes.
