Lithograph printed in colors, 1963, hand signed by the artist in pencil, dated and numbered 5/200 and titled "Le Soleil Rouge." Attractively framed with custom gallery partially 24-karat gilt-wooden frame. 36.25" H X 25.75" W including frame. The Dutch artist Corneille created lyrical, expressionist paintings bursting with color and movement. He was one of the founders of the important postwar European art movement known as COBRA. Corneille was best known for radicalizing the conservative Dutch art world in the early 1950s, making modern art not only acceptable, but embraceable as well. He placed familiar subjects — birds, cats, women and landscapes — in mythological and often childlike contexts, imbuing them with spontaneity and bright, sensual reds (such as is represented in the present work). Corneille founded Cobra in 1948 with five other artists, including his close friends Karel Appel and Constant Nieuwenhuys. The name was an acronym made up of the artists’ home cities — Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. The artists drew inspiration from surrealism, but believed that style promoted too much discussion and not enough action. This piece encapsulates the energy, vibrant palate and loose figuration that collectors of his work prize. Corneille’s work is represented in major collections around the world including domestically, in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. less
