These colourful French squashes, or coloquintes, (pron. kolloh-kahnt) were painted in the former studio of Marc Chagall in the hilltop town of Gordes, Provence. The studio was now a guest house. The ceiling’s round beams are visible in the mirror.
The yellow and red ochres (US ochers) used in making artists’ paints come from the nearby town of Roussillon.
Watercolour, private collection, Brittany, France
