French Vintage Exhibition Poster for Yves Brayer (1964). Newly framed, the poster announces an exhibition of the works of Yves Brayer at the Galerie Isy Brachot in Brussels, Belgium. Discovered in the South of France, this gallery holds several Yves Brayer posters acquired from an individual with an impressive collection of these alluring and desirable works. They are charming and would suit being hung on the walls in your home or workspace. If more than one poster is desired, please contact the gallery via this platform.
This poster shows some minor signs of age in the bottom centre but is in overall good condition and is beautifully framed. Interestingly, this poster also retains a Belgian 1 Franc Fiscal Stamp in the lower right hand. Timbre Fiscals, or Revenue Stamps, are usually adhesive labels used to designate collected taxes or fees on documents, tobacco, alcoholic drinks, etc. Typically, businesses would purchase the stamps from the government (thereby paying the tax), and attached them to the taxed items as part of putting the items on sale, or in the case of documents, as part of filling out the form. Upon request a video will be provided.
About the Artist: Yves Brayer (1907-1990) was born in Versailles, France. Determined to be an artist from an early age, he set out for Paris in 1924, initially studying at the academies in Montparnasse, and from there he attended the École des Beaux-Arts. Whilst still a student he exhibited at the Salon d’Automne and the Salon des Indépendants, and in 1927 Brayer left Paris for Spain with the aid of a state grant to enable him to study the works of the Spanish Masters in the Prado.
On his return to Paris in 1934 he exhibited a collection of paintings inspired by his travels in Europe and Morocco to great acclaim. Having moved south to Cordes in the Tarn region of France after the War, Brayer then discovered the area which was to have the greatest artistic influence on his work: Provence. He was enchanted by the diverse and architectural forms of the Alpilles mountains, and by the vast expanse of the Camargue region with its ubiquitous white horses and black bulls. From then on he spent several months each year working in Provence. He also made several trips to Mexico, Egypt, Iran, Greece, Russia, USA and Japan where he was quick to grasp the unique rhythm and light of each country.
A large collection of Yves Brayer’s paintings are on permanent display both at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Cordes, in the Salle Yves Brayer and at the Musée Yves Brayer in Les Baux de Provence, as well as various museums in France and elsewhere. Yves Brayer died in 1990.
