Year: 19th Century Size: 29.9" x 34.6" / 76cm x 88cm Medium: Oil Description: French fine art painting: French School of the twentieth-century oil on canvas signed André Lemaître (1909-1995), dated '66 on the back and titled "Nature Morte au Panier" or, "Still life with basket". This is a very large-scale painting. The painting has thicknesses marked on the elements of the composition and reveals the passionate nature of Lemaitre, who paints with his truth, his mood. The work is built in large vertical, horizontal, and geometrical composition. Lemaitre paints without drawing, or mapping details in advance which means the composition is as raw as the colors. Lemaitre is a conceptual painter who suggests his truth to us with force, gravity and incredible technical mastery. Overall size: 29.9" x 34.6" / 76cm x 88cm. Size without the frame: 23.6" x 28.7" / 60cm x 73cm. Provenance: France
