About the Item

Pierre Olivier DUBAUT (1886-1968) Head studies of a horseman, Geoffrey Larcher, 1936 Signed lower center Watercolor, black and red chalks and pencil on paper 22 x 27.5 cm Titled and dated on the reverse of the framing "Geoffrey Larcher, 1936" In quite good condition : foxings and stains (see photographs please) In its original frame : some damages : 34 x 39.5 cm Pierre Olivier Dubaut is particularly well known for his watercolours of horsemen and everything to do with horse racing and riding. Here is a fine example. Pierre Olivier Dubaut was born in Paris, he had a great predilection for horses, which he represents in many paintings and watercolors. He etched sometimes on the etch and on the stone. He was a member of several artistic societies, he especially admired Theodore Gericault, he had collected a remarkable collection of drawings and watercolors and also some paintings by this painter. He collected also drawings by Delacroix and Guys. In collaboration with the late Duke of Treviso, he was preparing a definitive work on Géricault. In addition, he had also a collection of old Masters drawings. "Pierre Olivier Dubaut is a virtuoso of watercolor, the ideal vehicle for his supple invention and warm spontaneity. With a nimble brush, he seizes without fixing it the life which passes, the fleeting movement, the ephemeral. He suggests the form of an unrepentant, elegant and light stroke: scenes of trenches during the 1914-1918 war, horse races, paddock, polo, bathers seen on the beach of Deauville. Elliptical and limpid washes build the essential. His watercolors appear in several museums, notably in Trouville, Compiègne, Belfort, The Hague..."
