"Charles Bichet (1863-1929) "
Pretty little gouache by Charles bichet representing a study for an oil, titled "thouron, December 1924, N ° 284, canvas of 12", signed lower left. (see last photo before framing where we see all the annotations of the painter) format without frame at sight 15x16,5cm. It is indeed a rather rare study in gouache taken on the motif, for an oil called "thouron, 1927", which is a village in Limousin near Limoges. bichet treats this pattern with gouache, as usual the key is nervous and powerful, in a vice palette and colored like wild animals. Work from the artist's maturity period where he masters his art to perfection. Charles Bichet was born in Paris where he began his career as a drawing teacher before being transferred to Limoges. He will then remain his life during the Limousin capital where he will rub shoulders with other artists such as Paul Thomas, Aridas, Alluaud or his famous son-in-law Léon Jouhaud whom he will train; He will have other very many students. He will set up his easel in the Creuse valley towards Anzême, hence his attachment to the Crozant school, but also in La Rochelle or Paris. After very classic beginnings, from 1903/1904, he destroyed all his previous works and radically changed his way of painting by observing the very first works of the Fauves, he then adopted a much freer touch, sometimes even slightly divided, but especially an extremely rich palette of colors; it will be exercised first on still lifes, that which I propose in another advertisement dated 1906, is an example. Bichet could be considered as a true Fauvist painter who painted in this way during the period of this movement and not as a follower of it. He even tried Cubism and also made some rare collages in the spirit of Picasso. With his friends Alluaud, Jouhaud and Thomas, he is now one of the most sought-after and highly regarded Limougeauds painters. He will exhibit alongside them at the famous Galerie Dalpayrat in Limoges. Several exhibitions will be devoted to him and many paintings are preserved and exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Limoges. this gouache is in perfect condition, delivered in a modern golden frame. guaranteed authentic. provenance: descent of the painter
