André Brasilier
L'Arc de triomphe

2000-2021

$228,500

About

Energized with bold color, this monumental oil on canvas by famed French painter André Brasilier captures the famed Arc de Triomphe, one of Paris' most recognizable landmarks, on Bastille Day. The architectural grandeur of the historic site and the celebratory nature of the scene come alive thanks to Brasilier's expressionist influences, seen in his distinctive loose brushstrokes and saturated color palette. A French flag, hanging from the apex of the arch, dominates the canvas and vibrates with intensity of color. The artist perfectly evokes the vitality of this distinctively Parisian affair, with the monument and crowds awash in the bright light of the midday sun. Born to two accomplished artists, Brasilier was naturally drawn to painting, and at the age of 20, he moved to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts. Brasilier has received several prestigious awards, including the 1952 Prix Florence Blumenthal and the 1953 Prix de Rome. He is also one of only two artists (the other being Pablo Picasso) honored with a retrospective at Saint Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum during their lifetime. He has exhibited works alongside legends such as Picasso, Braque, Chagall and Miro, and he is represented in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York). This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Alexis Brasilier.
