2008

About

'Marché Dansant' is an oil on canvas painting of medium size, created by French artist Georges Nasri in 2008. Featuring a palette made of red, blue, beige, orange and brown tones, the painting exudes an aura of liveliness. Leaning towards abstraction, the painting depicts a French market, accented by the tall presence of the parasols, responding beautifully to the plane trees, while the colorful strokes of the lower left evoke the graceful presence of a flower display. Unframed, this French oil on canvas town scene is signed lower right. You probably could not spend the day in Provence, going to the market, eating in a restaurant, sipping coffee in a café, and walking the streets, without feeling the presence of Georges Nasri or his graceful, colorful paintings. He is a permanent fixture of the region, an appreciated citizen who has garnered his share of awards and accolades and whose work hangs in dozens of restaurants and stores. Georges Nasri won his first national award for painting from the Minister of Culture in Lebanon when he was twelve. He came to France as a student in 1969, and after obtaining his MBA, worked in the financial industry for many years before returning full-time to his true passion of art in 1997. Inspired by the light and color of Provence, the artist is also influenced by the work of Monet, Manet, Matisse and Dufy, and drawn to impressionism and fauvism. Nasri’s paintings are defined by their emotion, cheerfulness and color, and particularly by their ability to depict graceful movement with a light and spontaneous brush stroke. His favorite subjects are those that involve movement, including dancers, orchestras, cafes, boats, toreadors, carousels and horses. A great romantic, Nasri also loves to show couples in love, whether dancing together or huddled and touching in a café. Although his paintings are full of movement, the artist is a calm and gentle man, who seems to take life as it is, looking at the positive and avoiding confrontation and pressure. Nasri has received his share of positive press in the French newspapers, including the following translated from French: “Georges Nasri is inspired by everything that erupts with movement and joy, everything that can make you forget daily life.” La Provence, 1998. Or the following reference to Cézanne and Nasri in the same sentence of La Provence Libérée, January 2001, “What is it about the City of Aix that gives us such great artists?” Whatever the answer, Atlantans seem to agree with the sentiment, as Nasri’s work has been enormously successful in this city too.
