Oil on panel (village of Angles on the back), Signed bottom left and titled: "Moulin de Daudet, Fontvieille". Beautiful and large work by the Avignon painter Joseph Hurard, depicting a view of the Daudet mill in Fontvieille with a shepherd and his sheep. The artist has been able to capture the atmosphere of a summer evening by using vibrant colors and playing with contrasts.
A student of Pierre Grivolas and Charles Vionnet in Avignon, Joseph Hurard exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants from 1908 to 1914, showcasing numerous landscapes, particularly from Avignon and Villeneuve-les-Avignon. He joined the Groupe des Treize founded by Clément Brun. After World War I, he exhibited in galleries in Marseille. In 1932, he settled in Martigues, a site he had been painting since 1913.
