About

'Portrait of Suited Boy', gouache on fine art paper, by Max Moreau (1943). A fine portrait of a well-to-do boy from the period during WWII. Moreau deftly captured the boy's delicate features and his confident regard - that certain immodest look that comes from being part of the upper social tier of society. The artist demonstrates incredible skill in detailing this portrait with gouache and watercolour and it is this skill which has made his portraits so desirable for international collectors. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. The work is framed. There is some blemishing on the paper surrounding the painted portrait however, it does not affect the overall impression of the artwork. Upon request a video of the piece will be provided. Signed: 'Max Moreau 1943'. About the Artist: Max Moreau (1902 - 1992) is a highly acclaimed artist born in Belgium. He is best known for his loosely brushed street scenes of Paris, Granada and North Africa and for his revealing portraits of people with whom he came into contact during his many travels. Taught to paint by his father, the family moved to Paris where he made copies of paintings at the Louvre. Later Moreau and his family lived in both Tunisia and Morocco before settling in Granada, Spain for the remainder for over 30 years. Following his death in 1992, his home was converted into a museum dedicated to his life and work. His paintings are internationally collected and appear at auction in the major international houses. Dimensions with frame: H 70 cm / 27.6" W 58 cm / 22.8" Dimensions without frame: H 54 cm / 21.3" W 45 cm / 17.7"
