“The thousand silent lives of a painter-gardener”exhibition – Château de Villandry

Gérard Fally’s passion for nature and his vegetable garden can be witnessed in the “silent lives” which he paints from life and where his models are his fruits, flowers and vegetables, as well as gardens and landscapes. As a result, he creates canvases in many different formats which seem to match perfectly: trays of pears, bundles of asparagus and baskets of lemons ... plus, of course, the gardens of Villandry! Gérard Fally
