Brigitte du Mérac is a landscape painter whose figurative means of expression excels in the treatment of country atmosphere. She is equally gifted for scenes set in the street, at markets, outside cafés. Her paintings are vibrant with limpid colours creating a beneficial silence, respite and serenity. The depth of her works, the mystery of backgrounds, her ode to joy are incentives to dream and escape.


I feel painting is a fulfillment which I currently try and make people share in giving them moments of joy, poetry and emotion. I love colour, light, harmony, faraway spaces that induce dream and escape. My favourite subjects are Brittany and the South of France, but I also enrich my vision with wide new horizons taken from my travels all over the world. I first capture the lush of nature which surrounds me by listening, breathing fragrances, feeling coolness, heat or wind, that is to say, the atmosphere. I then choose the lines and stresses which my painting will be composed of. Emotion arises from these multiple encounters, that I like to express on canvas. I am a personal admirer of Rembrandt, Goya, but also Pissarro, Monet, Corot, Turner, Cézanne and de Staël: These are my masters. They motivate me to get higher and improve.
