I am pleased to present here the second in 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 . The present work almost has a feel of Chinese calligraphy.
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.
Measuring 34 x 10 cm, the work is painted on slate-like salvaged board which is a little rough around the edges. It is signed and dated 1959 on the verso. Presented in a very simple wooden frame, the overall size is 36 x 12 cm.
