Paris, France (法国巴黎), 1992, Oil on Canvas, 63 x 79 cm

Artwork Highlight

Of the many, many bridges and crossings linking the Right Bank and Left Bank of the Seine, the Pont Royal is the third oldest amongst them. Coming after Pont Neuf and Pont Marie, the bridge is supported by five arches, underneath which one may occasionally see a boat glide under. This particular painting places the viewer under what seems like a tunnel, peering out of the stonework to see the Pont Royal. Framed by the arch and the soft wisps of tree branches, it is a cosy small perspective with which to view the Seine, normally captured in wide angle shots. As always, Koeh displays a remarkable grasp of composition, as the arch also serves to focus the viewer’s attention solely on the bridge.
