"André Cottavoz (1922-2012) "
Superb oil / panel of aglomere by André Cottavoz representing a nude with a bouquet of flowers, signed lower right. format without frame 41x36cm. It is indeed a sublime composition by Cottavoz, he represents here one of his favorite subjects, a nude sitting in a deckchair near a bouquet, as usual he treats this subject with touches extremely rich in matter, from the great Cottavoz to the top of his game! Indeed, I no longer present André Cottavoz, a Lyonnais artist known and recognized throughout the world, one of the forerunners of the Sanzist movement, recognizable among all thanks to his impasto of colors, as he was the only one who knew how to master. Born in 1922 in Saint-Marcellin, in Isère, André Cottavoz studied at the École des beaux-arts de Lyon in 1939. In 1942, Cottavoz at 20, he was in class 22 and had to go at the Compulsory Labor Service. The STO earned him a deportation to Austria with his comrade Philibert Charrin. Despite trying living conditions, they managed to paint on pieces of cardboard and even to exhibit, but the paintings were destroyed. Released and his studies completed, he participated, from 1945, in several exhibitions. In 1953, he won the Fénéon prize. In the meantime, an important movement was born: the New figuration of the school of Lyon, or Sanzism. Jean Fusaro, André Lauran, Jacques Truphémus and Paul Philibert-Charrin join André Cottavoz to express the trends, namely the search for a light less natural than gushing from the very interior of the canvas, an intention only for his part Cottavoz maintains by the thickness of the “sensual paste which he accumulates in pastel and chalky tones […] being thereby figurative in the sense that he starts from reality, abstract in the sense that he reduces it to its essence”: painting, for André Cottavoz, it is truly sculpting his canvases (where monochrome is not uncommon) using a trowel, hence the nickname which he may have been given of "Monticelli vert". In Vallauris where he settled permanently in 1962, André Cottavoz became interested in glazed ceramics which he worked with Roger Collet. The works of André Cottavoz appear in many museums in France and abroad, and multiple exhibitions of his works have been organized in France and abroad from 1946. This panel is in very good condition, i just points out a small weakness in the upper left corner, but it was stopped and restored by a professional and now undetectable; for more stability it would be necessary to frame this work because for the moment I propose it without frame. guaranteed authentic work
