Description
Signed in medium, bottom left corner: H. Sugimoto. Written on back, left center: Village of Villiers
Stretched and framed. A man with a stick walks away from the viewer down a lane lined with houses on the right and a gated entrance at left. Two trees rise above the gate posts. The man wears a dark cap and shirt, brown pants and a white belt. The Houses are white with red roofs. A woman wearing a red shawl over a white skirt carries a bucket and precedes the man further down the lane. In the background greyish trees are visible under a grey sky.
Village of Villiers" and "French Willow Tree" were among some two hundred paintings that Sugimoto brought back from France. It was a solid body of work, and he was invited to do a one-person exhibit at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco soon after his return.
