MARINE ART:

Yvon le Corre's Yvon le Corre is a Breton seaman-a commercial fisherman by trade-whose second calling is that of marine artist. His sailorly eye, passion for traditional working watercraft, and attention to the details of the vessels he portrays give unusual power and authority to his work. A protege of Marin-Marie, he builds on the tradition of that great master of Atlantic art. Still , his style is distinctly his own.
