"Ronget. E (1892-1983), Seated Nude, Cubist, Frame"
Large seated nude by Elisabeth RONGET, French painter of German origin influenced by the cubism of André Lhote. Liesbeth Bohm was one of two daughters of Judge Gehheimer JustiratSalomon Bohm (1860-19426) from Graudenz (today Grudziądzen Poland) and Margarete Spanier (1876-1937) from Bernburg (from Saxony-Anhalt). She grew up and went to school mainly in Hanover. She was a pupil of Ludwig Vierthaler at the School of Plastic Arts (Kunstgewerbe- und Handwerkerschule Hannover) and a student in Munich until 1926. "The artistic temperament of young Liesbeth Bohm was supported by her parents who sent her to Vienna where she received a classical training in the Academy of Fine Arts. Continuing her university studies in Berlin, Elisabeth Bohm became friends with the painters of the Der Blaue Reiter movement, joined the Novembergruppe from 1926, frequented the Bauhaus in Dessau." We have read that she is in this "part of this pleiad of artists who bring art down to the streets by introducing it into fashion and everyday life", it is in the applied arts, that she then invested himself professionally, and his posters, very Art Deco, notably for the Grande Maison de Blanc, rubbed shoulders with his costumes created for the theater and reminiscent of those of Léon Bakst. Fabric projects for Lyon houses are also entrusted to him. This allows him to live and seems to be enough for him. She does not imagine that what she paints in her moments of freedom is much more important”. In Paris, she met the merchant Georges Emile Ronget, originally from Pantin, whom she married on October 23, 1934 at the town hall of the 17th arrondissement of Paris (deed number: 1858). The German occupation made Elisabeth move to Provence in 1941. We find Georges Ronget engaged in Free France in London from July 194010. After the Second World War, however, she returned to the Parisian salons. In addition to nudes, still lifes and portraits such as those of the patron Camille Renault or the actress Adrienne Servantie, his work consists of compositions on themes entitled The Musketeers, The Belle Époque, The Nightmare of the Bird (The Fall of Icarus) or The Last pure water drop.

CRITICAL RECEPTION she never sells, she never tries to show off her painting. And yet, what talent! Starting from expressionism, it will slowly evolve towards a cubism without dryness or austerity. Later, it will move towards the fringes of abstraction, with barely sketched characters. Straight lines are then replaced by curves and the colors soften. Ronget's canvases become shades of blue, white, yellow, gray..."- Françoise de Perthuis "If André Lhote's advice leads him to a strict and solid linear arrangement, to a certain stylization of the figures, to a partitioning of the canvas, geometric shapes, the choice of bright and sometimes strident colors, dramatic distortions, the bursting of bodies betray his origins and deliver his restless soul to us. Little by little, the often broken and angular lines of Elisabeth Ronget's compositions give way to curves. The elegance, precision and finesse of this new writing reveal to us the resources of a palette refined by the years, tests and research, the evocative power, the faith and sometimes the fantasy of this Slavic artist, secret and mystical.”- Claude Robert “Cubism in its colorful and decorative aspect. This Polish artist who adopted French nationality settled in Paris after having lived in Berlin for several years: she suffered the all-powerful influence of André Lhote.»- Gérald Schurr PUBLIC COLLECTIONS Fonds national d'art contemporain, The Hague Artothèque de Puteaux PRIVATE COLLECTIONS, France, Italy, Switzerland...
