"This painting was done a second time because the initial background which was blue, blue as the sky and the sea, and these tones did not correspond inside the person who wished to acquire the painting. So I imagined these two young girls walking on a fine sandy beach in an imaginary country on a sunny day. The light envelops them in a gentle setting. The transparency of water reminds us of distant countries, the countries of the sun." - Alain Rolland

Self-taught painter, Alain Rolland was born in 1947 in Bourgoin-Jallieu (Isère, France) where his first exhibits were launched at the Salon des Amis des Arts.

Working independently since 1977, Rolland settled in Lyon where he made art for advertising agencies, which were numerous at the time. Through an intermediary in Paris, he specialised in illustrations of animals, often for commercial packaging. He also illustrated all of the flora and fauna pages for the famous French dictionary Larousse. Rolland learned to paint in many styles and worked on a publicity campaign for Swiss cheeses. All of this was done while painting portraits for clients in his free time.

In 1990 Rolland heeded the call of Mather Nature and moved into a chalet nestled in an alpine pasture of the Haute Savoie region. There he specialised in panoramic mountain landscape paintings, which became trail guides for regional ski resorts such as La Clusaz, Grand Bornand, Praz de Lys Sommand, Le Semnoz, Lac de Bourget, Les Orres, Orcières Merlette, Gerardmer, and ten other resorts in the Ariège Pyrénées. During this time, and in collaboration with three other artists, he established an annual exhibition called Les Pictoriales de Thônes (Thônes Pictorials), which continued for over fifteen years.

When he returned to a more civilised life, it was to the shores of Lake Annecy. Once again drawn to oil painting, which allowed him to apply all the techniques he had accumulated over the years, he found freedom when in front of a canvas. His methodology is to capture the light in intimate compositions. Recently, he has felt inclined to include elements of contemporary and abstract art into his Hopper-inspired repertoire.

Alain Rolland currently lives in the South of France, in the small village of Plan de la Tour, Department of Var, where the soft light purifies all of the objects on which it falls. He is excited to see where this new direction will lead him!
