"Carnavalet Museum: Voltaire Lounge Chair"
This oil on canvas represents theMusée Carnavalet in Paris XV where is exposed the armchair of "Voltaire" beside his bust. The composition, remarkable in the treatment of its perspectives, in the subtle shades of ocher, in the treatment of light and its reflections seduces us and surprises us with its pointillist technique. The rarity of the theme and its historical dimension make it a work of interest. In perfect condition, the painting has on the back a label that lists several paintings of the painter of ours and another that we have. Beautiful Montparnasse frame: 33,07x 39,37 INCHS Geoges AUFRAY (1864-1941) French School. Painter of landscapes and interior scenes, he was born in Ecouen which, at the end of the 1800s, had become a kind of Mecca for artists who were searching for the truth in nature. At the end of his training in Paris, Georges settled in Ecouen. No doubt he also sought the influence and success of Pierre-Edouard Frère, a resident artist, recognized as a specialist in children, and around whom a painter colony artists developed. The paintings of Georges Aufray thus continue the tradition started by "Frère"; images that, according to the critic John Ruskin, "have approached the simplest subject with a perfect sense of his greatest humanity". The artist exhibited regularly at the annual Salon of the Society of French Artists between 1927 and 1939, receiving an honorable mention in 1931 and a silver medal in 1934. Ref Benezit.
