The ceiling of the tower of Bordeaux.

The ceiling of the tower of Bordeaux was executed by J-G DOMERGUE.

“I endeavoured to sing Bordeaux, land of Cognac and wine; Bordeaux, the large port open to our colonies and Bordeaux, the antechamber of pine forests and Basque beaches. Amid the alcoholic vapours from the alambics, a woman distills grape juice whilst her companions strive to create new and precious blends for our gourmet palate.

Rubber, ivory and exotic fruit make up the merchandise that the Creole and the Negros wearing bright-coloured rags, lay out before our eyes thanks to the steam ship tied-up in smoke visible in the distance. With its mauve-grey quays, like the sky, its rust-coloured port and its heavy bunches of grapes held in women’s hands. This is how Bordeaux appeared to me, the capital of wine. ” 


1933 : “Diane”, at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. 1936 : 2 works representing «Joséphine Baker»
