C Buhler
The Harlequin, Colourful Mid 20th Century Painting

1960s

$3,017.68

About

Mid-century oil and acrylic on board of a harlequin with flowers signed C Buhler bottom right. Presented in plain white painted wood frame. The Harlequin was a recurrent theme with many artists of this period including Pablo Picasso, Andre Lhote and Bernard Buffet. This harlequin dressed in the familiar patchwork of colourful stylised diamonds is both fun and packs a punch. The bobbed hairstyle and the heavy dark make up are characteristic of its period. The name Harlequin is taken from that of a mischievous "devil" or "demon" character in popular French passion plays. ... The name's origin could also be traced to a knight from the 9th century, Hellequin of Boulogne, who died fighting the Normans and originated a legend of devils. There is nothing devilish about this harlequin who, contemplative, in repose, laid back and surrounded by flowers seems to express the desire for love and peace at the end of the 1960s going into the 70s. A joyous, colourful addition to any collection.
