"Augustin Grass-mick, Avignon, "Charming subject, mother and her child in Avignon. Painting signed, located and dated 1919, "Avignon, les Roches des Doms", by the painter Augustin Grass-Mick. (1873-1963). Extract from his biography: "After having done his three years of military service with the Dragons, he leads a bohemian life, dining with friends or patrons like André Level, sleeping in artists' studios. We see him in the evening. in all the cabarets, at the Chat Noir, at the Moulin Rouge. He crossed paths with the whole of Paris of the arts. His name began to circulate and exhibitions followed one another: Galerie Berthe Weill (see the site www.bertheweill.fr), Salon des Indépendants , Salon d'Automne, Salon des Humoristes ... He works in the spirit of Lautrec. He sketches Parisian life in a spontaneous and realistic way. Very wary of merchants who impose the buyer's taste on artists, he wants to be free and flees the fashion of the moment that we find at the Bateau Lavoir with Braque and Picasso. In 1906, he married a variety singer, Lucie Arnaldi, his partner for 4 years. It was during this period that he experienced a certain glory. But in 1913, on a whim, he left Paris for the sunny u the south of France where his wife is from. The light of Provence bewitched him, like Renoir, Van Gogh or Braque before him ....
