Suzanne, Large Mid Century Portrait Drawing by Gourdon

1950's

$1,732.66

About

French, Mid Century, pastel and crayon portrait of an elegant young lady by Gourdon. Signed and dated bottom left. Trade label to the back board. Presented in period deep 'tray' frame. This seems to be an early work by the artist and hence it carries his name rather than his later more distinctive signature 'Aslan'. Alain Gordon was one of two brothers, his sibling Michel also went on to achieve notable success with his distinctive 'comic' style. Alain Gourdon (23 May 1930; Bordeaux, France – 11 February 2014; Sainte-Adèle, Quebec, Canada) was a French painter, sculptor and pin-up artist who painted under the name of 'Aslan'. He is mostly famous in France for his pin ups. He contributed to 'Lui' from the creation of the magazine in 1964 to the early eighties, providing a monthly pin up. He is the sculptor of the Dalida's funerary statue on her tomb from 1987, and her bronze bust that was erected on Place Dalida in 1997. He also sculpted the Fifth Republic Marianne as Brigitte Bardot in 1970, followed by the Mireille Mathieu Marianne.
