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.

You can view them online at:


  1. That looks great! The lights have worked particularly well.

  2. Excellent tribute Chrissy you've done a brilliant job there. How interesting that Vallette was a French artist who chose to live in England and most English and other artists preferred to paint in France.

  3. Thank you for the information:) nice pictures and post!

  4. A painter couldn't have done it better. Am impressed.

    Please have a good Friday.

  5. That is great! Love the colors.
