Portrait of a Young Boy

Circa 1960s

About

'Portrait of a Young Boy', mixed media on paper (circa 1960s) by Raymond Dèbieve (1931 - 2011). This is a warm and sympathetic portrait of a young boy, possibly the artist's son, Vincent, who was born in 1958. The boy's wide ears, pale skin and delicate, shy smile, as portrayed, signify much affection for the subject. In excellent vintage condition, newly frame and glazed. Unsigned, however the Dèbieve family certification authority has stamped the work in the lower right hand corner. About the Artist: Raymond Dèbieve (1931 - 2011), was born, along with his twin brother, Michel, in the North of France near the border with Belgium. Their parents, of humble origins, noted a talent for drawing and art in both of the boys and encouraged them in that direction. Unfortunately the boys were separated during the war years but reunited afterwards. They attended the School of Fine Arts in Valenciennes after WWII where they were awarded successive 1st prizes in the Concours de Encouragement à l'Art. Raymond not only painted but was a gifted sculptor of metal works as well. In 1960 he exhibited, with great success, a series of very colourful paintings at the Galerie des Flandres in Lille, France and subsequently in Paris and Switzerland. Primarily with respect to his portraits of women, Raymond was undeniably influenced by Picasso. At the same time, he has managed to forge a distinct style which is much admired and now collected. In 1962, Dèbieve relocated to Provence with his family where he continued to create and exhibit art until his death in the town of Orange in 2011. Since then, Dèbieve's star has been on the rise and his works more and more in demand internationally. Dimensions with frame: H 59 cm W 49 cm Dimensions without frame: H 45.5 cm W 36.5 cm
