'Standing Nude', oil on canvas (circa 1960s), by Edgar Stoëbel (1909 - 2001). In his inimitable style, artist Stoëbel's image of a standing woman is a lively and colourful modernist work. The image has a pop art quality to it and was created just as that movement was emerging. Pop art challenged traditional painting by embracing images from advertising, popular culture, comic books and mundane objects from everyday life. This artwork has a powerful intensity of tone and colour which speaks to Stoëbel's very distinctive style but remains completely approachable and appealing. In fact, this is not pop art. This is part of the post-war concrete abstract movement, or Constructive Art. The painting has been newly framed with linen slip and is in good vintage condition commensurate with age. There are some minor blemishes on the canvas due to age. Signed: 'Stoëbel'.
About the Artist: The French artist Edgar Stoëbel (1909–2001), real name René Teboul Yechoua, was born in Algeria in 1909, and died in Paris in 2001. Stoëbel was the pseudonym he used as a painter. From a very young age, he was attracted to music and graphic art, and these two art forms were closely linked throughout his life. As a soldier in WWII, he drew scenes of daily life throughout the Italy campaign, and began producing imaginary drawings that prefigured his own style created in 1960, which he christened 'Figurasynthese'. "Figurasynthese is the image one makes of an object, not the object in the form in which it appears to us: it is subjectivised and represents an unreal form in every way. The relationship between the forms is what makes the Figurasynthese.” Stoëbel’s painting in the 1960s was part of the post-war concrete abstract movement, or concrete art, also known as Constructive Art. The artist's works are found in museums and personal collections throughout the world.
