How to get a flower portrait in post-mortem photography
Posted August 13, 2018 09:11:54 After his death, the former owner of the estate where the painting is located in the French Riviera town of Le Petit Cambodge, Vincent Czerny, went into a state of deep depression.
But he was also deeply influenced by the work of his wife, Jeanette CzERNy, who had been a post-war art collector and had created the original paintings for his own collection.
The Czarnys’ two surviving children, the Czederys, Jean and Jeanette, were all in attendance at the unveiling ceremony.
In the post mortem photographs they took, the family members and their friends are seen posing together.
When the pictures were first released by the Cinque Ports museum, it was widely interpreted as a sign of the artist’s physical deterioration.
In reality, the couple’s children had grown up with Vincent Czarnecki’s work and were fascinated by it, according to a report in the Sunday Times.
Vincent Czernalys died in 2007 aged 86.
In an interview with the French newspaper Le Monde, Czerrnys’ granddaughter, Louise Czdern, said her father’s “painting has been a source of great joy to us.”
“When you look at the work, you see him in his true colours,” she said.
“He is a great man.
His heart is in painting, but his mind is also in painting.”
