About

1950s portrait, gouache on paper painting by Belgian artist, Max Moreau (1902 - 1992). A fine portrait of a lovely young girl looking like a good child from the period right after WWII. Moreau captured the delicate traits of the little girl and her extremely calm and well-behaved behavior. Hand-signed and dated on the bottom right corner. The artist demonstrates incredible skill in detailing this portrait with gouache and watercolor and it is this skill which has made his portraits so desirable for international collectors. Originally framed in an elegant mahogany carved frame with glass protection. Measurements: With frame: 25.19 in. wide (64 cm) x 30.32 in. high (77 cm) x 2.38 in. deep (6 cm) Opening view: 19.69 in. wide (50 cm) x 24.50 in. high (62 cm) Max Leon Moreau (1902 - 1992) Moreau is a highly acclaimed artist born in Belgium. He is best known for his loosely brushed street scenes of Paris, Granada and North Africa and for his revealing portraits of people with whom he came into contact during his many travels. Taught to paint by his father, the family moved to Paris where he made copies of paintings at the Louvre Museum. Later Moreau and his family lived in both Tunisia and Morocco before settling in Granada, Spain for the remainder for over 30 years. Following his death in 1992, his home was converted into a museum dedicated to his life and work. His paintings are internationally collected and appear at auction in the major international houses.
