WORK of Artist     

Marie-Claude TREHET

began painting portraits after her firs talent of drawing. She then moved on ton still life's landscapes and se seascapes. The period consisted of Breton landscapes with ethereal sky's and blue seas. It was followed by a period of equestrian scenes full o dreams and poetry.

At the same time, Marie-Claude TREHET became one of the lower Normandy Artists where the President" Andre LEMAITRE "offered her his advice.

IT was then that began a period consisting of landscapes flowers and countryside scenes on a canvas with large grains which she prepared herself using the old method.

Her painting begins to take shape and develop although is increasingly tinged with austerity. The colours are warm and harmonious but their heavy tones add a certain atmosphere of nostalgia to per work.

It is, however, during the period of SPLEEN  that she enjoys the most success, in the Breton exhibitions, namely PERROS-GUIREC  where she exhibs every year during the month august.

In 1984, her encounter with HAMBOURG is the start of new possibilities. Even if she briefly returns to painting the sea and shimmering waters which  meander through the Bocage landscape, she quickly tunes towards  themes which bring about the use of more vibrant

 colours, although in doing so, it does not in any way alter the feeling of sensibility in her work.

First of all it is the Marshes of Normandy beach or carnival scenes, or fishing in the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel which emit vitality and radiance.

From this moment on, man is of great importance in her work, purified but essentially still intimate.

As of 1992, she rediscovers Provence .

Her painting becomes move enriched, refined with canvases of Carmargue, ports such as MARTIGUES or LA CIOTAT, the landscape of HIGH PROVENCE such as those which pleased GIONO :

villages with ocre facades, sometimes raised high above the spattering   

rivers, bridges extending over the calm and never ending streams, porches witch facades full of light with a fresh shadow hidelen 

under their arches.

this period captures the time light of Provence , the serenity and at the some time, the strong, eternal and magisterial aspects of the 

various facets of Provence.

It today Marie-Claude TREHET where to be rated or described, it would be characterize her time, inspired by the great sight of nature, movement and light.

"She is to the plastic arts what a composer is to music"
