$2,800

About

A stunning oil on canvas in the purest art deco style by French born Jean Hanau. It depicts a harlequin-in a tight chequered body suit. Athletically built, he may be a circus trapeze artist. He is seated with his back towards us in an attic room; playing his guitar. Artist Jean Hanau, having exhibited at the Paris Salons, taught for periods from the 1940s at the Art Students League. Deaf from birth, he was a member of noted New York City group of deaf people called "The Merry-Go-Rounders". In 1942, he became an American citizen and lived his last 25 years as an active artist in New York City near Greenwich Village.
