Tony AGOSTINI (1916-1 990) “Peasant chair with black cut” Oil on canvas, signed lower center resigned and titled on verso. 46 x 33 cm and 65 x 53 with frame Provenance: Galerie Guigné, Paris, 89 rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris. Biography Tony Agostini is a self-taught painter. Although very young passionate about Rembrandt and Paul Cézanne1, it was the prospect of an administrative career in Paris that led him to settle in Montmartre where, in 1944, he was found linked to Francis Carco, Marcel Aymé, and especially the painter Gen Paul2 of whom he is the neighbor in the avenue Junot. Tony Agostini was part of the La Chignolle fanfare with Gen Paul, Jean d'Esparbès, Frank-Will, Pere Créixams and Marcel Aymé3, and he began to paint in 1946, his first pictorial themes being crowd movements and nocturnal Paris4. "Perhaps influenced by Gen Paul in the color which is both shocked and murky, he observes as to the form the strict Cézanne principles, sometimes inflected by cubism". Moving then towards landscapes, studio interiors and more essentially towards still life (a major theme in his lithographic work), his personal practices of horseback riding, cycling and especially rugby nevertheless give meaning to his sending to the Salon of painters who witnessed their time in 1957 with a “vast canvas” entitled Rugby - Le plaqué1. It was in this same year 1957 that Tony Agostini moved to Antony, initially at 3, rue d'Alsace-Lorraine, then at 7, rue des Augustins where he lived until his death.
