/// Biography of Josette BARDOUX ///
Born in Saint-Cloud on January 6, 1948.
Self-taught, she began with a true naive painting, not manufactured.
In 1973, she exhibited in Boston. In 1976 in Belgium, in Ostend and Kortrijk. In 1977, at the Galerie Roussard.
Of Auvergne origin, his lithographs, paintings, pastels and drawings are naive celebrations of rural life. Josette paints a mythical nature, a countryside where she likes to live and where she recently decided to retire. She composes genre scenes, country weddings, a shepherd in his solitude, fishermen, the grape harvest in the Bordeaux region. The rhythm of the seasons and the strength of rural tradition meet with references to mythology and the Bible. Exhibited in Montmartre, and for a time worked with Robert Delval, which corresponds to a short period in which his style was influenced by Hundertwasser.
