Historical Context:
The art of Fanch Ledan, known today by his Breton nickname “Fanch,” is intrinsically tied to the events of his life. Fanch creates imaginary scenes of everything from worldly and exotic destinations to intimate interiors. His interior scenes, dubbed “interiorscapes,” often feature hanging paintings of the artists he most admires – a way for him to pay homage to their influences on his own art.
