"Interior Scene with Figure and Flowers" Post-Impressionist Oil Painting Framed

20th Century

About the Item

An intimate interior scene of a woman reclining in her living room with a bouquet of flowers on a sunny afternoon. We are charmed by the rich choice of color and intimate details throughout this miniature work. This painting depicts a woman in a red dress situated with her hand under her chin and in a relaxed position. The artist captured the times of his generation in an emotional and impactful way, a sweetness is felt throughout as we can imagine the sentiment in the thick textured oil paint. The piece is done in a highly impressionistic manner with unique colors and expressions. This painting is a wonderful display of Zucker's more impressionistic styles, with bold colors of green, red, and with softer hues of white and pink. This painting is signed by the artist lower right and it comes housed in a golden wood frame with hanging wire on verso ready to be displayed. Art measures 9.5 x 13 inches Frame measures 13 x 16 inches Jacques Zucker was born in 1900 in Radom, Poland. He was a notably famous Jewish American artist mostly known for his expressionist figure paintings. In his young years he traveled to Palestine to study fine arts at the Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. In 1917 he joined the British Royal Fuesiliers under the leadership of General Allenby to liberate Palestine from the Turks. After the first World War he settled in Paris, where he continued his studies at Académie Julian and Academie Colarossi. He then emigrated to the United States in 1922 and continued his art studies at the National Academy of Design. He supported himself by designing jewelry. In 1925 he returned to Paris and studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumier et Colarossi. During the Depression he worked for the WPA. From 1928 he took part in the Paris Salons: Autumn and the Tuileries. His works are expressionistic variations in the type of the Ecole de Paris. As a protégé of both Chaim Soutine and Renoir, hints of their style can be observed in much of his own work. Zucker’s style, that may have been influenced from the art of artists such as Marc Chagall, took pride in being an “internationalist”, standing the art of painting in its highest expression is universal no matter where the canvas was created. People who respond to quality in art will understand the beauty and meaning, in their own land or in a foreign land, this was his main idea behind his artworks that was exhibited in numerous solo show in leading galleries and museums in New York, Paris, Tel Aviv, and other art centers. Claude Roger-Marx of Figaro Litteraire, dean of French art critics, write a comprehensive study of Zucker’s illustrated with 135 color and black and white plates. He traveled widely, including Italy, Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Israel. From then on Zucker lived alternately in New York and Paris, maintaining homes in both places, and spent considerable time painting in Mexico, Portugal, Greece, and Israel. Zucker's post-impressionist works including town and landscapes, still-lives, and portraits, are part of an array of permanent installments in numerous museums and private collections in Tel Aviv, including the Joseph Hirschorn collection in Washington, D. C., the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and the Bezalel Art Museum in Jerusalem. In 1947 he settled in Arcueil near Paris. Zucker died in 1981 in New York. PROVENANCE: Jacques Zucker Estate; Private Collection New York City; Lilac Gallery Collection. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
