About

Naturalistic portrait of a french woman with a styled hair cut. The work is signed and dated by the artist. The paper is not framed. Many others are available. Please inquire to buy the entire collection. Artist Biography: Emile Lejeune was a painter form Geneva. He moved to Paris and opened up his studio at 6 rue Huyghens in Montparnasse where a range of events was held at including concerts by the group known as Les Six, exhibitions, including an exhibition of African art organized by Paul Guillaume, and poetry readings, particularly by Apollinaire and Cocteau. After visiting Provence, Emile Lejeune finally decided, in 1922, to move to Cagnes with his family. Both Soutine’s portraits of Lejeune date from this period, either before Lejeune left Paris, or just after he had moved. He was influenced by artists like Amedeo Modigliani and Claude Monet.
