Model with Hand on Shoulder
Ink and ink wash painting on paper,
44,5 x 36,7 cm – 17 1/2 x 14 1/2 in.
by André Bizette-Lindet (1906 – 1988)
The artist was curious, free, uncategorizable. Winner of the Prix de Rome in the sculpture category in 1930, he increased his trips and was even made Peintre Officiel de la Marine in 1947. You can see his works in New York, Ottawa, Paris, Le Mans, Rouen, Chambéry, as well as in Saint-Malo since Louis Arretche, reconstruction architect after the war, commissioned him for four series of enamelled stoneware. His nudes, always very stripped, charm by their resolutely modern technique.
