Fabienne Delacroix paints France as it may have been over 100 years ago, with vistas of everyday life and family gatherings. He especially captures the feeling of time and of a culture that was elegant, playful, and well dressed. His colors are vibrant and then monotone. The country life Mr. Delacroix depicts takes us back into a time of harvesting, swimming, and social mixing. Many of the painting are quite small, but charming, mirthful, with a sense of France as a reverie of the mind. This exhibit may also be seen at the Axelle Galerie in Soho, NYC.
