Paul-Élie Gernez
Dimanche - Post Impressionist Figurative Interior Oil Painting Paul Elie Gernez

1924

About the Item

Post impressionist signed and dated oil on paper laid on panel by French painter Paul Elie Gernez. The work depicts a woman wearing a black dress with a white apron seated at a desk peering into an open drawer. Signature: Signed lower right and dated 1924 Dimensions: Framed: 34"x22" Unframed: 26"x14" Paul-Élie Gernez was not unaffected by the explorations of the Cubists, but he took to heart Vauxcelles' words that Cubism leads to painting provided you leave it behind. Strengthened by salutary experimentation, he returned to nature. He was primarily a landscape and seascape artist, having spent almost the whole of his life in Honfleur, and he is sometimes reminiscent of Jongkind in his observation of light on the sea. Among his works are nudes and female figures, and more flowers than still-lifes. He illustrated François Mauriac's Génitrix and Charles Maurras' The Road to Paradise (Le Chemin de paradis). His varied works are characterised by great sensibility which does not exclude firm structuring. He held solo exhibitions in Paris in 1917, 1922 and 1924. A posthumous retrospective, curated by his friend Robert Rey, was held in 1969 and a further one took place in 1984.

    Arnold Friedman studied with Robert Henri and Kenneth Hayes Miller at the Art Students League in 1905 . Yet as he developed his style he abandoned the academic influence of his teacher. He started experimenting with materials and techniques. Friedmans intimate style recalls a variety of post-impressionist artists such as Pointillism of Pisarro, Vuillard and Nabis, and perhaps even Seurat. His thick application of paint has definitive textual impasto that was influenced by his trip to Paris in 1909. In "Museum Piece...
