I am pleased to present here the first of a series of three abstracted works by French artist Pierre Humbert (b. 1929). Clearly inspired by a humble kitchen staple - onions - they are graceful and elegant and endlessly evocative . Humbert was part if the Les Mains Eblouies group of abstract artists, which counted
Joan Miro, Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder, Antoni Tapies and Pierre Alchinsky
among its members. Les Mains Eblouis exhibited notably at the famed Galerie Maeght
founded 1936 in Cannes, which specialised in non figurative and avant garde works.
The work presented here is a miniature, measuring just 9 x 12 cm. Painted on slate-like salvaged board, it is signed and dated 1959 on the verso. Presented in a very simple wooden frame, the overall size is 11 x 13.5 cm.
