#LoveArt – Valériane Leblond

#LoveArt / Collections / News and Events - Posted 17-01-2018

This month, artist Valériane Leblond takes part in our #LoveArt campaign.

She has chosen ‘Cottage loaves baked in an ancient oven at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant’ by Geoff Charles, January 1955 as her first choice.

I love how Geoff Charles allows us to enter people’s houses and learn more about their everyday lives. It takes a special talent to make people feel comfortable and natural in their own homes, especially if they are from a humble background. I have chosen this picture where Miss E Hughes seems so proud of showing how to bake a loaf of bread – bread is essential! – but there are many more by Geoff Charles of families, kitchens and hearths that are really interesting too.
