About this piece

Wintz gained a firm appreciation by critics and collectors as a leading painter of landscapes, sea and harbor scenes. His inspiration was the picturesque harburs dotted along the Brittany coastline, which he often portrayed through an open cottage door or window.

This painting overlooks a busy harbor, three ladies engaging in an activity on the sanded edge of the port, while a man takes his boat out, like many of Wintz’s paintings he depicts the small blue cottages, boats dotted by the port and a warm seaside feel with activity either from the sea or the people.

The style in which Raymond Wintz painted can be broadly termed as ‘realism’, although a slight leaning towards impressionism can been noted with his use of pastel color and thick brushstrokes. Wintz may have been attracted to the Brittany locations where most of his port paintings are set, painted from life due to the quality of the light. Wintz had previously 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.

Artists biography

Raymond Wintz was born in Paris on 25 March 1884. He was the son of the painter Guillaume Wintz (1823 - 1899) and the husband of the painter Renee Carpentier (-Wintz) (1913 - 2003).

Wintz trained at the School of Decorative Arts and the National College of Fine Arts in Paris. He was a pupil of Jules Adler at the Ecole Francais and started exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1910. He is best known for painting marine and coastal views in Brittany, France and one of his most famous works, The Blue Door, has been widely reproduced in print.

Paintings attributed to ‘Richard Wintz’ and ‘R. Wintz’ also appear to be by Raymond Wintz, displaying many of his characteristic motifs and stylistic features. The confusion has possibly arisen because his signature is ‘R. Wintz’ and ‘R. Wints’ appears to be a misreading of this.

Wintz’s works have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the world including the Petit-Palais in Paris and the museums of Reims, Montreal, Montevideo and Glasgow. His paintings sometimes appear for sale at auction with most originating from and returning to private collections.
