Berlin School
'Abstract Composition in Colour' by Lemaire

Circa 1960s

About

'Abstract Composition in Colour', oil on canvas, signed by an artist with the name Lemaire (circa 1960s). Bold lines, geometric shapes and vivid colours are combined to emerge as an extraordinary work of art. Clearly influenced by the works of Picasso, this piece has a striking presence sure to enhance the ambience of whichever room in which it will be placed. In good vintage condition commensurate with age, the piece has been newly framed with linen slip. Signed: 'Lemaire' in lower right hand corner. Upon request a video of the artwork can be provided. About the Artist: Our gallery has access to a cache of paintings from the 1940s to the 1970s attributed to an art collective whose traces start with Germany. Berlin to start, but also Dresden, along the Saale, Weimar, Brera in Milan and Brussels. From the post-war period and onwards, they hosted young people who experimented with different painting techniques with exceptionally creative results. Over the years, dedicated art-seekers managed to unearth a treasure trove of these works from forgotten repositories. Once examined, the paintings were presented first to the Italian art market and then beyond, to art lovers in Europe and the United States. When beautiful art is timeless and the search for it fires a passion, the thought-provoking works of even 'invisible' artists can’t help but be uncovered. Quietly, but surely, word of mouth scattered the news of the existence of these found artworks: cubist, expressionist, futurist and avant-garde. To label these pieces doesn’t do them justice truly, but to call them studies, sketches, experiments or simply, creations, would be more accurate. It is interesting to note the artworks were very often unsigned, but often as not, initialled or monogramed. Using known masterpieces as reference, their mentors suggested a particular style with which to experiment. Regrettably, this makes it impossible to pinpoint who amongst these bright creatives ‘made it’ in the world of art. But it really doesn’t matter. Each experiment was extraordinary and therein lies the interest in these works. Today, the artists’ creations hang on the walls of art cognoscenti in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Miami and Los Angeles. Galleries scramble to acquire the works having recognised the outstanding potential in the international art markets for these pieces of such fascinating origins. Dimensions with frame: H 62 cm / 24.4" W 52 cm / 20.5" Dimensions without frame: H 48.5 cm / 19.1" W 39 cm / 15.4"
