"School Of Paris : "the Little Dancers""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 !
For today, I have brought down these charming dancers, Little rats of the Opera, working for one at the helm for the other in a movement in the foreground, treated in a bold and precise touch at the same time, with a twirling brush in a limited range of colors, work close to the Artists of the School of Paris, this oil on hard cardboard 41 X 27 cm carries an unidentified monogram at the bottom right. Mounted in a black Flemish style frame with inverted slope 55 X 41 cm, slightly rubbed.
Dirty and small scuffs, circa 1930.
