Marc Le Rest (1970-), Samurai Tokugawa, Oil on Canvas, Framed, Signed and Da

About

About the artist Born in 1970, Marc Le Rest is a French born artist who turned his back to a promising career within the Holy Church to dedicate himself to the Arts and the Kingdom of lingerie in Paris. Soon he swapped Paris for New York, where he became an acclaimed garden gnomes designer. Afterwards, he spent some time in Mexico and India. Le Rest also contributed as a textile designer to the collections of Hermès, Armani, J.P. Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel and Etro in Europe as well as some collections of the major home furnishing textile companies in the United States. This type of painting seeks to rediscover the Northern European portraits of the 16th and 17th century by painters. It’s an alliance between minimalism formalist representation of the subject and an almost obsessive and baroque application to the figuration of the detail in the costumes. This pictorial inspiration is associated with another tradition is art history, the animal painting. In case of ‘Samuraïs’ his collection of 2019, the monkeys are the models, dressed up in fine costumes, seated as fine Ladies and Gentlemen. And the costumes the figures are wearing are based on the Japanese warriors during the Tokugawa era. During this period, samurai increasingly became courtiers, bureaucrats, and administrators rather than warriors. With no warfare since the early 17th century, samurai gradually lost their military function during the Tokugawa era.
