"Naif Painting : "the Baby Promenade""I deliver this painting to you as long as I can still climb into my attic where I installed my "ripener", namely a kind of painting library where I stored quality works, but with an illegible, even anonymous signature in waiting for serendipity to make me meet his brother in a catalog, book or exhibition, allowing me to identify them ...
Oh! It still happens to me three or four times a year, sometimes on works acquired 30 years ago, sometimes the previous month.
If a user has a track, I thank him in advance and he knows that it is better to deal with a tall skinny than a fat dwarf !
Today, I give you this adorable naive picture, probably made by a touched dad, who represented his wife walking their baby in a pram in front of their house in front of which dries clothes on a thread.
The stylized trees, the gap of blue sky between the clouds immediately seduced me when I acquired it 8 years ago.
At the crossroads between Pédro Figari and Douanier Rousseau !
