'Woman with Hoop Earings', oil on canvas, by Louis Latapie (circa 1930s). Filled with colour, this extraordinarily seductive work by French artist, Latapie, is compelling in its warm allure. Latapie is well known for his many portraits of women. The subject in this artwork seems completely at ease with her effortless smile, perhaps suggesting a warm relationship between the two. The artist's technique in this case is fascinating as well. He fashioned the image combining many bold, linear strokes of colour to create the whole. Although later in Latapie's career he embraced cubism and abstraction, this piece seems placed somewhere in between that and his earlier expressionist and more figurative periods. The artwork is in good overall condition with a new frame and French-style linen slip. The canvas has been relined. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video of the artwork will 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 1972, 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.
