£1,200.00

SKU 0582

'The Letter', gouache on fine art paper, by Michel Debiève, (1985). A serious looking young man in suit and tie intently writes a letter - the old fashioned kind - with fountain pen, while sitting at his desk. Behind him, a vast green plant with much curiosity creeps up behind him trying to get a glimpse of what is being written. Wouldn't you like to know as well? The artwork is in good vintage condition, newly framed and glazed and signed: 'M. Debiève 85' in the lower lefthand corner. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided.

About the Artist: Michel Debiève was born in 1931, along with his twin brother Raymond, in the North of France. Very early, encouraged by their father, the two young brothers discover their creative sides. After the war, their new step-father bought them their first art supplies: paints, easels and palettes. Later came formal studies at the School of Fine Arts in Valenciennes where the quality of their artwork was quickly recognised and awarded. After two years of painting stained glass for church windows in the early 1950s, the brothers went their separate ways for over 60 years. Michel painted in the very West of France in the city of Nantes and brother Raymond in Provence. Michel Debiève's artworks have been on exhibit in Paris: Galerie Mai, Galerie du Siècle, Galerie La Demeure and at La Porte Ouverte where he rubs shoulders with many renown artists. His works also form part of the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes and Valenciennes.
