About

'The Orchestra', oil on canvas, by Maurice Empi (1990). Empi's paintings are colourful, uplifting and even inspiring. This one is no exception. A French orchestra is led by their accomplished conductor who unifies the performers, sets the tempo, listens critically and shapes the sound of the ensemble. They also oversee the interpretation and pacing of the music. In this case, the artist's masterful and vivacious interpretation in oils expresses his love for orchestra music and pays tribute to classical musicians around the world. The artwork is in very good overall condition and is framed. It is signed in the lower left hand corner and on the backside by the artist. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video of the piece may be provided. About the Artist: Maurice Empi was born in Saint Etienne in the Loire Valley in France in 1933. In 1949 he enrolled in the 'Ecole Technique Supérieur de Art et Publicité' in Montparnasse, Paris. His professor and friend, Marcel Basler, also an artist, convinced him to abandon his studies in advertising and graphic design to dedicate his life to art. He's never looked back. His first private exhibition was held in Paris in 1953 and his reputation quickly propelled his work overseas to Stockholm in 1955, London in 1959 and Nagoya and Tokyo in 1971. His works are decidedly collectible and increasing in value as he approaches his mid-eighties. Empi's works have been sold at major auction houses worldwide and held in many civic and private collections. His painting themes feature views of Paris and Venice, horse racing, sailing regattas, musicians and their orchestras and French cafés. Dimensions with frame: H 49.5 cm / 19.5" W 58 cm / 22.8" Dimensions without frame: H 33 cm / 13" W 41 cm / 16.1"
