Coq Au Vin

Coq au Vin is an original acrylic painting with paper decoupage and is the latest piece in my “French chicken” series.

The idea was inspired because of my immersion in French life in the countryside and my love of cookery. Coq au Vin is a traditional dish of Burgundy originally, which utilises an old cockerel and the deep red wine of Burgundy, cooked together for hours with onions, herbs etc to soften and tenderize the bird.

The cockerel is created from a copy of the recipe by Elizabeth David (head and body), original 1973 Le Monde newspaper (on the comb and feet) and a copy of sheet music (the tail feathers). I have then painted over the paper to create a beautiful cockerel.

Below the cockerel are printed photos of red and white burgunday wine bottles which were then painted and attached to the canvas in an ad hoc chaotic fashion.  I think the overall affect is quite effective and looks at the recipe separating it into the basic components of the dish.  This piece is painted and decoupaged around the edges and ready to hang.  It has also been varnished and therefore protected and would be ideal anywhere in the home or on a restaurant / café wall.

The artwork is despatched with a certificate of authenticity and a tracking number.

I hope that you enjoy this piece of work as much as I did creating it.
