Baigneuse I, Watercolor and Pastel on Paper

About

This contemporary watercolor and illustrates a female figure at side profile, wearing a swimsuit and looking out into a green blue background. The portrait has a soft and atmospheric tone, and the composition is close and intimate. Yves Crenn was born in Vernon, France in 1969. He began painting in 1985 following the tragic death of his father – the creation of art served as an outlet for his sorrow. Five years later he enrolled at Les Beaux Arts de Rouen where he studied oil painting and drawing. His talent was recognized early on and he was asked by his professors to represent the school in Germany by participating in a large group show in Braunshweig. This was the beginning of a long career professionally exhibiting his work throughout Germany and beyond. In 2003, Crenn began working with dry pastels and watercolor to create the unique textures that define his current work. These serene, harmonious paintings are a perfect combination of precise draftsmanship and free brushstrokes. He uses muted, natural tones that compliment the delicate nature of works on paper. His first solo exhibition in Rouen was met with high acclaim from critics. More than just conveying beauty, there is a strong emotional presence in his paintings. Artension quite accurately describes Crenn’s work as, “an expression of an individual interior need.”
