One of the finest and most talented painters of Upper Normandy, Michel MARGUERAY was born in Calvados and has been practising his art for many years. He is a full-blown artist whose works I first saw in Rouen as early as 1974. Undoubtedly figurative, Michel Margueray honours reality with much sensitivity and personality without ever submitting to it however. A landscape painter, he depicts skies with expertise and diversity steeped in emotion and energy, thereby underlining lively and harmonious sites where time and climate and light make a whole that demonstrate the painterís skills as a great colourist. It is impossible to conclude without mentioning his wonderful ability to draw perspectives that are judiciously necessary to the beauty of landscapes in which the elements, vegetation and characters advocate experience, curiosity for the unusual and generous atmospheres.
