'The Horse and the Woman', oil on canvas, by Lucien Madrassi (circa 1930s). In this thoughtful depiction, the subject of the painting is walking alone in the countryside, her sun-darkened skin contrasts with the pale whiteness of her horse. The blustery breeze animates the landscape which also absorbs the colour of the close of day. She protects her eyes from the glistening sunset while curiously looking in the direction of the viewer, seemingly surprised by our presence. A tranquil and sublime scene it is. In good vintage condition commensurate with age, the artwork has been newly framed with linen slip. It is signed by the artist in the lower right hand corner. Please view the many accompanying photos with this listing. Upon request, a video will be provided.
About the Artist: Lucien Madrassi (1881-1956), born in Paris, the son of an Italian immigrant from Udine and a Bretonne mother. He was a student, among others, of Raphaël Collin and became a member of the Salon des Artistes Français in 1906. He traveled to Algeria and Tunisia in 1912 to find inspiration for his artwork. He is best known for having painted local scenes and their inhabitants, portraits and landscapes. He lived for an extensive period of time in the French countryside in Saint Saturnin, Auvergne, in central France. Madrassi was also an accomplished illustrator and a prominent member of their French Institute. He died suddenly of a heart attack in 1956.
