High - End art sales suffer global slump

Christie’s reports first-half art sales were down by a third from the same period last year....

Daniel Courbois is one of the finest post-Impressionist  painters of France.

In his paintings, Daniel tries to convey his own personal philosophy of art. He loves to explore the complex interplay of light and its effects on architecture and surroundings. An avid traveler, Daniel uses his photographs simply as the starting point, an inspiration for his composition, He paints what he wants the subject matter to be, engaging collectors with uplifting paintings filled with harmonious color, depth and vitality. While striving for truth in his paintings, he does believe that "perfection is the enemy of great art." A single brush stroke can speak volumes in a painting. Daniel is inspired and influenced by the poetry in the brush strokes of John Singer Sargent, Isaac Levitan and Henri Martin.
