This is a wonderfully bold and daring composition in orange and yellow. The colour is beautifully warm and glowing and the simplicity of form audacious and free. A real explosion of energy on a canvas. Philippe Lepatre , pseudonym of Philippe Lazar , is a French painter and engraver of Romanian origin, born on August 6 , 1900 in Bucharest and died on November 14 , 1979 in Paris. His works are signed with the monogram "PL". Philippe Lepatre who arrived in Paris in 1928, was a student at the Sorbonne before going on to study architecture in Berlin . During the Second World War , he took refuge in the south of France where he began to paint. Participating in actions in the Resistance , he obtained French nationality in 1947 and moved to Paris in 1953 in order to devote himself to painting and engraving. His work falls into lyrical abstraction and takes on an intellectualized character, his first solo exhibition was at the Galerie Colette Allendy in 1956. His 1968 exhibition at the Stadler Gallery was inspired by his writings on the subject of 'Reality in its Totality – Essay on the Hierarchy, Principle and Function of the Work of Art' . His training as an architect greatly influenced his art as he believed that only abstract art could sit alongside the modern architecture of the time. He wanted his works to be universal.

  • Style Moderne, Abstract Geometric, Oil on Canvas.
    Located in Cotignac, FR
    Mid 20th century modern abstract oil on canvas attributed to French artist Norbert Palmade. The painting is not signed but was bought from his atelier and with a collection of his paintings and is therefore attributed to him. A highly colourful, energetic and impactful painting. The paint is very thickly applied in parts and is therefore also somewhat sculptural as a piece of art. Sand has been added to the paint to give the image great texture. A joyful painting to brighten any room. Norbert Palmade spent much of his early years living in Morocco. He arrived there in 1930 at the age of two and stayed until 1947 when he returned home to France. He finished his schooling in Hyères in the south of France, then travelled up to Paris to study architecture. There aged 25 he set up a public works business and worked as an architect right up until his retirement in 1991. Throughout this journey Palmade never stopped painting, at first in watercolours. He had always drawn, then moved on to gouache, oil and finally in the last twenty years, acrylic. The latter suited his rapid handling of paint well. He says of himself that he had no particular speciality. He would paint whatever gave him pleasure, although a large part of his heart belonged to those early years in Morocco and he painted many a canvas with subjects from this country. He took part in exhibitions in a number of towns near the south coast of France including, Sanary, Le Pradet and Ollioules. He was also the guest of honour at the Academy of the Var. Geometric abstraction is a form of abstract art based on the use of geometric forms sometimes, though not always, placed in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions. Although the genre was popularized by avant-garde artists in the early twentieth century, similar motifs have been used in art since ancient times. Sonia and Robert Delauney...

A highly colourful, energetic and impactful painting. The painting is very thickly applied in an impasto technique in parts and is therefore also somewhat sculptural as a piece of art.

He arrived there in 1930 at the age of two and stayed until 1947 when he returned home to France.
