The port Gaillac as painted here was the principal reason for Gaillac’s success until the commencement of steam railway in 1864.
“The Port of Gaillac 1863” 100 x 200 cm (60″ x 79″), by Gordon Frickers
Sold, this painting produced on time in budget, was commissioned as a foyer centre piece for the Museum ‘inVINcible VIGNEron‘ at Tres Cantons, Montels, near Gaillac and as such has proven one of the most memorable impressions taken by visitors to the museum.
The choice of many distinguished people and renowned companies, Gordon Frickers is widely considered a master of spectacular painting as indicated by his unusual résumée.
Good painting takes time, great painting takes longer.
To commission one of my paintings, the sooner we start the sooner you will have a great painting.
The Port of Gaillac 1863
on busy May morning is an awesome painting to see…
The quays of Gaillac opened the region to the world.
Wine and many other valuable products have 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 today, the quay(s) of Gaillac remain an enigma, a mystery.
Today those largely forgotten quays are the pass port to a beautiful fascinating and complex regional history.
