Beauty portraits by Annick Bouvattier
Annick Bouvattier was born in Nevers in the mid sixties. Her father, a paediatrician and art lover, passed on to her from her early childhood his passion for painting. Annick Bouvattier painted women, often alone, in almost empty flats, but furnished mainly by shadows and light. Young, pretties, they live their femininity without false modesty, unconcerned by the looks of others. Large canvases, close-up compositions, the works of Annick Bouvattier are spaces where the picturial rhymes with the emotional.
