Scene de Famille

Annette Ollivary 1926 - 2012


Back garden scene of a whitewashed house with a family and domestic animals. There is a table in the centre, layed with a tea service; two children are seated to the rear and the right. One chair is vacant to the left and to the rear, a mother stands holding a baby. There is a large brown dog standing beside a child in the foreground, and to the right, is a girl in pink dress with a doll in a pushchair; her back is to viewer. To the left side of the table is a white dog reclining, and in the doorway of the house, a white cat. To the far left of the scene, a curving stairway leads to the first floor of the house, and to the far right, there is a summer house. Creepers and potted plants cover the house. The intimate, family scene is painted in bright tones with rather simplified, stylised characters depicted.
