peinture huguette arthur bertrand pampelune - 1962

Huguette Arthur Bertrand frequently gave geographical titles to her works. She thus provided pointers in space, but also indications of the sources of her artistic inspiration.
With the painting Pampelune (Pamplona), the viewer can imagine in this abstract composition what could have impressed the artist in the city of northern Spain. Can it be understood as a tribute to its Gothic churches, a bull race, or a stage of the Camino di Santiago da Compostela?
