Peintres de Bretagne

From 2 to 17 December 2011

Institut français d’Ecosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

A visual tribute to the dramatic landscapes of Brittany by the three French artists from Brittany-Scotland Association

To celebrate the end of the Brittany-Scotland Year, the Institut français d’Ecosse invites the artists from the Brittany-Scotland Association to exhibit their work in its gallery. With oil, watercolours or acrylic, and each in their own style, Manya, Laskal and Pierre Delignière apply themselves to depicting the Brittany they love and cherish.

Brittany-Scotland association was created by both friends of Brittany and of Scotland in 2000, with a great desire to improve a better relationship between the two Celtic cousins.

About the artists

Born in Quimper, Maria Ansquer alias Manya has been living in Morlaix (north Finistère) for thirty years. She began with oil and acrylic before switching to watercolours to reproduce her impressions of north Finistère and Brittany seashore landscapes. Manya exhibited several times in Morlaix, Royan and St Andrews.

Born in 1970, Pascal Beherec alias Laskal, already has behind him numerous exhibitions since 1990. His main themes are linked to the Celtic world: Goddesses, Eyes, the white ermine, symbol of Brittany, without forgetting Breton landscapes. In 2006, he obtains the first price at the competition “Painting Quimper”. Now, Laskal tries linocut and wood engraving, while exhibitions multiply in Brittany.

Pierre Delignière has studied art at ‘Les Beaux Arts de Quimper’ under his master Jean Le Merdy. With gouache then acrylic, he has always been keen on reproducing Breton landscapes, seashores or mysterious inland. President of Brittany-Scotland Association, he has recently switched to Scottish landscapes. Delignière exhibits his paintings in Brittany as well as in Scotland.
