'The Mill', oil on paper mounted on canvas, by Louis Latapie (circa 1930s). A colourful wintery scene, the bare trees are like wireless telephone poles along the stone-fenced road. The steep roofs of the nearby buildings suggest a location in the North of France while their geometric shapes and bold outlines imply a composition leaning towards cubism. This very desirable work by an important European artist is seductive and alluring. Although later in Latapie's career he did fully embrace cubism and abstraction, this is a rare artwork from his earlier transitional phase as he moved further from his expressionist and more figurative works. The piece is in fair overall condition with some slight fading and blemishing. The painting has been stabilised by attaching its original art paper to canvas. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. The work is newly framed with a French-style linen slip. Upon request a video may be provided. Signed 'Latapie' in the lower right hand.

About the Artist: Louis Latapie (1891-1972) was a highly celebrated artist who enjoyed an international reputation which continues today. During his long career he exhibited regularly at the major Paris Salons, including the Salon des Indépendants, the Salon d’Automne and the Salon des Tuileries. He had numerous individual and group exhibitions including Art et Résistance Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris in 1946. On his death in 1971, he was honoured, like Braque and Picasso, with a major retrospective at the Palais des Papes in Avignon. Further comprehensive retrospectives of his work were held in 1988 at the Musée Rapin and the Musée des Augustins. Appearing in numerous exhibitions and sold in the major auction houses, his works can be found today in the collections of museums worldwide including the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, (Paris); Musée d’Art Moderne, (Paris); Musée d’Art Moderne (Geneva); and the city museums of Toulouse, Avignon and Poitiers.
