Accueil 5 Themes 5 Sea


If there is a recurrent theme in his works, this is the one!

From his childhood in Indochina, Jean Delpech was mesmerized by boats! Small fishing boats, sailing ships, trawlers, liners, submarines, he liked them all, and he drew them all.

In 1956 he received the title of “Peintre de la Marine” what enabled him to make voyages on the National Navy boats (and to add an anchor along with his signature…). He took advantage of the honor to spend some time on the sea and to return with many drawings about “Life on board”.
