"Roland Chanco (1914-2017), Painting"CHANCO (Roland), painter born in Reignac-sur-Indre on February 05, 1914. In the 1930s, he left his native Touraine in which he was already noted for his talents as a painter and moved to Paris to learn sculpture in Marcel Gimond's workshop. But very quickly, he returned to painting and frequented great artists such as Maurice Utrilo, Edmond Heuzé, Gen Paul and Pablo Picasso who noticed "the vigor of his paintings". Paris inspired him enormously, especially the Butte Montmartre district. It was in 1947 that he decided to settle on the French Riviera. He found Pablo Picasso there and rubbed shoulders with Joan Miro, Jean Lurçat, Jean Cocteau, Marc Chagall and many others. From 1970, Roland Chanco modified his painting and entered his so-called "kaleidoscopic" period where his creative power gave his compositions surprising effects. Her imagination creates unusual and endearing characters who vibrate with colors. This work, an oil on canvas, titled "Gisèle et Oscar" dates from 2000.
