Port of Gaillac 1863
Measuring 110 x 500 cms (39″ x 60″),
The Port of Gaillac 1863 on busy May morning is an awesome painting to see; by Gordon Frickers, oils on canvas, sold.
This painting was commissioned as a foyer centre pièce for the remarkable new Museum ‘inVINcible VIGNEron‘ at Tres Cantons, (T:+33 (0)5 81 02 44 89) Montels, near Gaillac.
The port was the principal reason for Gaillac’s existence.
Wine has been grown upriver from Bordeaux in the Gaillacois, one of France’s oldest, most beautiful and most under-rated wine regions for 2,400 and more years.
Yet the quay(s) of Gaillac remain an enigma, a mystery.
The quays of Gaillac opened the region to the world.
Today those largely forgotten quays are the pass port to a beautiful fascinating and complex regional history.
