Jean Danjou Paintings

Danjou was a French born artist based in Provence France. He was very active in the region in the 1930s-1960s. He painted coastal scenes, towns and views of the French Riviera.

His post impressionist paintings both extended impressionism while rejecting its limitations. He uses vivid colours, a thicker application of paint and real-life subject matter.

His painting could be placed into the naive school, but looking deeper you can see his vision. Jeans art is produced in a straightforward style that deliberately rejects sophisticated artistic techniques. He uses a bold directness resembling a child’s work, typically in bright colours with little or no perspective. One sees his use of shading and reflection, giving the subject matter, life, movement and a sense of realism.
