Oil on Canvas by Charles Edouard Delort
Charles Delort was a French academic painter who was born in Nimes, France. He studied with Jean-Léon Gérôme and Marc-Charles-Gabriel Gleyre. Many of his beautiful paintings are worth up to $85,000.00. This particular piece depicts a group of men and women waving towards a fleet of ships sailing away. The woman`s burgundy outfit is what stands out, with her white handkerchief `flying` in the wind. It is a perfect example of realism with a touch of impressionism. It has been signed.
