Jean Baltus Peintre des Alpilles 1880

Saint Rémy de Provence - Exhibition - Du 30 avril au 31 décembre

Une trentaine d'années après Vincent van Gogh, Jean Baltus est l'un des premiers peintres à s'installer à Saint-Rémy.
Epris de la beauté des Alpilles, il explore routes et chemins, traverse vallons et gaudres, à la recherche du bon motif. Il est chasseur de paysages. Il admire le caractère antique -virgilien- des Alpilles : les fonds rocheux, les douces harmonies des terrains, les oliviers tantôt gris- vert sombre, tantôt argentés qui lui font aimer les jeux de lumières et le dessin.
Ses amis peintres sont Le Fauconnier, Gleizes, Chabaud, Seyssaud ou Derain, mais il ne partage pas leurs batailles esthétiques. Il revendique le fait d'être romantique en 1930 et se veut paysagiste comme Poussin et Corot.
Suivre Jean Baltus, c'est se plonger dans le paysage des Alpilles, mais c' est aussi vivre le Saint-Rémy des années 30, accompagné de la clientèle internationale du Grand hôtel de Provence, des amis artistes ou des gens simples. C' est aussi sillonner les routes en vélo, en moto, ou au volant des premières voitures comme au temps de la fameuse Course de côte des Alpilles.
