Description  
Raymond Wintz is best known for his paintings of marine and coastal views in Brittany, ‘Blue Harbour’ is a great example of his typical theme. The painting depicts a beautiful harbour, with boats gently floating in the clear blue sea on a bright sunny day, giving an idealized view of the area. The interesting perspective allows the viewer to look down to the shore, the people in the scene are also looking in the same direction, out into the distance. The buildings have a nautical charm with brightly coloured shutters and rustic features. The style in which Raymond Wintz painted can be broadly termed ‘realism’, although a slight leaning towards impressionism has been noted. He may have been attracted to the Brittany locations because of the quality of the light. He has been called ‘the painter of light’ and his works were described as 'nostalgic' even in the 1950s. To a modern day audience his paintings may evoke childhood memories of holidays on the coast.
