RENÈ GRUAU (1909-2004) “Les Girls Suite” Limited Edition Signed Lithograph

$4,500.00
This large, limited edition lithograph by visionary fashion illustrator René Gruau (1909-2004) comes from the “Les Girls Suite” collection, in which Gruau depicts female figures cloaking themselves against the printed background of the lithographic paper. Rendered in cyan, Gruau depicts this figure with a large hat, sensually looking over her shoulder at the viewer. Framed in a tall, fabric-wrapped frame with black trim, this lithograph is signed by Gruau in the lower right corner of the print. Two other lithographs from this series are available, each sold separately. About the Artist: Born Renato Zavagli Ricciardelli delle Caminate in Rimini, Italy, in 1909, Gruau was the son of an Italian count and French aristocrat. Instead of following in his father's footsteps and accepting the job of a royal military commander, Gruau’s passion and inclination led him to a love and pursuit of fine arts, and he began supporting his mother by selling illustrations to fashion magazines at the age of fourteen. Gruau moved to the United States in 1948 to work for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. He remained with the magazine for two years, before working as the sole illustrator for Flair. Influenced by Japanese woodblock prints and the simplified designs of Toulouse-Lautrec, Gruau created a style of elegance that has had a lasting effect on how fashion is illustrated today. Gruau's artwork is recognized and commended internationally in some of the world’s most prestigious art museums including the Louvre in Paris and the Blank in Italy. He passed away in 2004 in Rome, Italy at the age of 95. This lithograph is amongst hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview!

KAREL APPEL (1921-2006) Signed Color Lithograph “Heads Everywhere”

Appel’s postmodernist sensibility to this work creates a brutally beautiful piece of art to add to the collection. Titled “Heads Everywhere”, this lithograph was originally purchased on Broad Street at the Columbus branch of the Pace Gallery in the 1960s-1970s. Dated to 1958, this lithograph is framed in black and signed and numbered in pencil by Appel at the bottom of the print.  About the Artist: Karel Appel was born in 1921 in the Netherlands, completing his first painting at the age of fourteen and eventually studying at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Appel had his first show in 1946 and joined CoBrA in 1948; a movement named by the Belgian poet Christian Dotremont from the initials of the members' home countries' capital cities: Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam. Appel’s work displayed spontaneous picture language and childish techniques to conjure fascinating images. His 1949 fresco 'Questioning Children' was placed in Amsterdam City Hall and caused controversy for this reason, causing the work to be covered up for ten years. Appel became the most famous of the CoBrA artists, with shows extending to the United States and portraits of jazz greats Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie becoming subject matter. Appel suffered from a heart ailment and died in 2006 at his home in Zurich, Switzerland. This lithograph is amongst hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview!
