Water Colour painting 'Jean Pied de Port France' by Claude Buckle

water colour painting of St Jean Pied de Port, a town in the Pyrenees showing the bridge over the river and the mountains in the distance.
Claude Buckle captures the magnificence of the Pyrenees Mountains and river in this water colour picture. The location is most likely St Jean Pied de Port. Almost certainly drawn from the north side of the Pyrenees (in France) near a crossing point. Buckle made many excursions to Spain and France seeking material for his paintings. This is the only one where the Pyrenees Mountains are shown.

Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France close to Ostabat in the Pyrenean foothills. The town is also the old capital of the traditional Basque province of Lower Navarre. Wikipedia. Created in 1969.
