Albert Fié - Résistance #1

Gifted with talent as a draftsman, painter, and caricaturist, Albert Fié, a resistant in Drôme, painted, after the Liberation, a number of gouaches depicting the Resistance, especially of the Pons company. With the precision of line, grand realism of the scenes represented, the artist shares the strength of his Resistance and that of his comrades.
Beautiful paintings with lots of detail; the longer I look, the more I see. And among what I see: many berets!
Over the next few days, the whole series on The Beret Project.
