Elisabeth Bardon, nee Lemaire, was born on 3 July 1892 in Sainte-Menehould, in the Marne region of France. She became a successful artist, illustrator and engraver. Her speciality was landscapes, and in particular seascapes. Her work was exhibited in various exhibitions in Paris from around 1927, at the École Française and the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, where she appeared until 1934, also at the Galerie Georges Petit. In 1931 and 1932 she sent some decorative engraved wooden panels to the Salon des Indépendants. She provided the original illustrations for the 1948 Georges Duhamel book Le Bestiare et Herbier.
Bardon died in Saint-Germain - la Ville on March 23 1984, aged 91, and is buried in the city of Châlons-en-Champagne, back in the region of her birth. Some of her work is preserved in the Carvavalet Museum in Paris.

This original oil on panel painting depicts a large ocean-going yacht sailing away from the viewer, across a lively sea. There are several small figures at the rear of the vessel, giving us a sense of perspective. The huge white sails of the yacht are billowing in the wind. This painting oozes with the freshness of the salt spray, the sheer exhilaration of speed and grace of the vessel as she speeds across the open seas.
The way in which the painting is presented in a floating mount adds to the sense of freedom and movement, making this an extremely attractive piece.
