Joseph Keiffer was partly raised in Paris by his artistic parents and he is back with a charming exhibition at Jane Roberts Fine Arts. From his French years he has kept, beaches in the Cotentin, 2 cv cars racing in Normandy, but also a staircase at 93 rue du Bac and a series of very French landscapes.
His style differs dramatically when he paints outside from life or more composed pictures inside. As if he had two different personalities indoors and outdoors ! Very interesting. As for British Parisian gallerist Jane Roberts, she has, for many years, exhibited intimate artists, sculptors and painters and a visit to her peaceful gallery on the fourth floor of 65 Fbg St Honoré is a perfect escape from the busy street.
