"Fernand Dauchot Dit Daucho (1898-1982) "RARE oil / canvas by Fernand Dauchot dit DAUCHO representing a still life with pitcher and eggs, signed and dated 1/10/1938 lower right. Out of frame format 38x46cm. Fernand Dauchot born in 1898, after studying at the School of Applied Arts of Paris and then at the Museum of Decorative Arts, he left on the front in 1917 from where he returned wounded. Then he arrived in Pont-Aven in 1923 where he frequented the artists of the Hotel de La Poste as Emile Jourdan, of whom he became a friend and even a biographer. He will even meet Vlaminck. He will participate in the restoration of the famous yellow christ of Gauguin and will save the work of Meyer De Haan from oblivion. It will therefore be at first very much influenced by the simplification of the Pont-Aven school, its first period until 1958 proves it, as the picture I present dating from 1938, rather early. He is even considered the last great representative of the Pont-Aven school; Then from 1958, he switches to a more and more simplified and geometricized painting, very influenced by Cubism, where he will deal with all topical subjects. His works are today highly sought after and rather rare on the art market, some are preserved in the Museum of Pont-Aven. A superb exhibition was dedicated to him in 2011 at the Musée du Faouêt, accompanied by a very beautiful work, where you can see a work on the Wood of Love of the same period as the oil I propose, as well as Very similar still lifes. This oil / canvas is in perfect condition, delivered in a frame of the 50's. Guarantee authentic.
