$0.00

Call For Location | 203-325-8070


Hand-written titled, signed and dated Jean Legros 1969 and studio stamp on the back of the work. 

Monochromatic white oil painted wooden relief – Excellent condition

9 ⅞ x 24 ¾ in                    (25 x 63 cm)

14 ⅜ x 29 ⅜ in   framed   (36,5 x 74,5 cm)

Custom-made, hand-crafted by the artist, beige linen covered wooden frame

Between 1966 and 1971, Legros interrupted is pictorial practice to create relief assemblies in white painted wood or in brass. These relief-sculptures are the result of the combination of geometric rigor and surrealist fantasy inspired by the famous artist Jean Arp whom Legros was very admiring and familiar with. Legros’ wife was a reputable scholar chosen by Arp to inventory his work into a Catalogue Raisonné.

The artist created organic, irregular shapes evocative of natural forms. Although he developed a highly abstract pictorial vocabulary, in his reliefs Legros always established a connection between these biomorphic forms and elements of the natural world in such a way as to unveil the mysterious and poetic elements hidden in everyday images.

Certificate of authenticity from the artist’s wife, Micheline Legros, who inventoried her husband’s body of work.

 Provenance:

The artist’s studio thence by descent.
