Françoise Duprat
"In Pajamas", Luth-Playing Monkey Riding Zebra Red Surrealist Acrylic Painting

About

This artwork depicts a monkey (maybe a vervet monkey ?), dressed in a black cloak, carrying a luth while riding a zebra, looking at the spectator. The background is plain red, with a red ball or sun behind the zebra muzzle. The zebra hooves raise a dust cloud, or he is running in a red water wave. The artist impasto technique is very light, most of the surface is almost flat. NB : The picture was taken before retensing the canvas, hence the pleats in the upper corners. This artwork is not framed. Françoise Duprat is a French artist. She learned art at the Atelier Met de Penninghen and Jacques d'Andon (now known as ESAG Penninghen), installed in the mythical Académie Julian, and she is a graduate of the prestigious Académie de la Grande Chaumière (where studied also Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Jérôme Savary, Zao Wou-Ki, Amedeo Modigliani, Tamara de Lempicka, Alberto Giacometti, Balthus and many other great names of contemporary painting).
