    Signed lower right "H. Delpech ".

    Painter from Bordeaux, Hermann Delpech was a student of Dupuis in Bordeaux before entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris where he studied successively with Gustave Boulanger, Jean Léon Gérome and Léon Bonnat. He then exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon from 1889 onwards and at the painting salons of Bordeaux, at the Société des amis des Arts and at the Atelier.
    Hermann Delpech was a painter of flowers, genre scenes in the Arcachon basin in particular, and landscapes of the Bordeaux region. Several of his paintings are in the Bordeaux Museum and the Cognac Museum.
    The subject of our painting is original. It is probably an allegory of the sea and a shipwreck with Poseidon, the God of the Sea, a shipwrecked person and the debris of a boat as well as a witness. It seems that the God of the Sea returns the body of the shipwrecked man to the land! This is a nice painting in blue-gray monochrome, perhaps a study for a salon painting.
