La Maison dans la Loire
Jean-Luc Courcoult

Jean-Luc Courcoult, founder of Royal de Luxe, imagined a house where the foundations, stuck in the silt, tilts slightly.

The image is realistic yet poetic. This sleepy house in the Loire could be a picture, a three-dimensional painting settled in time. Motionless. That is what the artist calls imaginary realism. “Realism” because it’s dealing with concrete reality. And “imaginary” because the goal is to introduce a little dreaming into people’s lives.
