"Oil On Canvas In Dyptique By Bernard Joubaire. Lemon Blue, 1969."Oil on canvas in diptych, signed, dated 7/08/69 and titled "lemon blue" on the back. Born in 1949, Bernard Joubaire became passionate about American painting from his adolescence, notably for the work of Lichtenstein, Rosenquist and Wesselman. Contemporary with Schlosser, Monory or Rancillac, he began to paint in 1967, also drawing inspiration from the artists of the new reality and the school of Nice presented in Parisian galleries. His creative frenzy, testimony of his time, will be as dazzling as fleeting: from 1967 to 1975, he produced dozens of paintings, initially very marked by American Pop art and then tending towards narrative figuration. He was exhibited in 1970 at the Verderonne Art Center and at the Galerie Merz Beauvais, then participated in 1975 in the Salon de la Jeune Peinture at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris and in the Salon Contradiction at the American Center in Paris. In 1975, he interrupted his career as a painter to study and then exercise the profession of architect, and did not return to painting until 2002, when the page of Pop art had been turned for a long time. For this child of the Second World War and the Thirty Glorious Years, divided between the beginnings of a rampant overconsumption and the doubts it raises, the pop movement, like the events of May 68, will be a cry of revolt and a manifestation of rejection of a society in turmoil. Joubaire, in this respect, is particularly representative of this period and of this rich artistic movement.
