Homage to Adolphe Valette
This is my homage to Valette’s painting India House (right). My photo is taken from a couple of blocks away and is of the Rochdale canal rather than the River Medlock of Valette’s work. I used Fotosketcher software to (hopefully) give my photo an impressionist feel.
Adolphe Vallette (1876-1942) was a French Impressionist artist who lived and painted in Manchester. He also taught Salford’s most famous son: the artist LS Lowry, at the Manchester Municipal College of Art.
Some of Valette’s most famous pieces were of Manchester and are on permanent display at the City Art Gallery.
