This composition probably represents a view of the port of Sainte-Marine in Combrit (Finistère) before the recent works.
Christo Chapidès was born in Samos (Greece) in 1909.
He settled in Paris in the 1930s, then married the daughter of the painter Henri-Jacques Delpy. He lived in Montmartre, near the "Bateau-Lavoir". In Paris, from 1939 to 1943, he exhibited landscapes, mostly of Paris, at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants. His favourite themes were Paris, Brittany and Greece.
