Richard Texier Abstract Oil Painting


Striking extra large painting by well-known Parisian Artist Richard Texier called Ca Gigotte, circa 1985. The painting is full of vibrant reds, plums, browns, blues, off white and black. Colors are rich and dense yet the overall palette is soft. No doubt an early glimpse of his universe that is so widely known. Today he is regarded as one of the best living artists of his generation. He began painting at a young age and his keen interest in the history of astronomy is largely inspired by the creation of his own personnel cosmography. Known for both his paintings and sculptures he has installations throughout the world. His works are to be found in numerous important public and private collections, both in France and abroad. Many major museums around the world have exhibited his work including the National Museum of Taiwan, the National Museum of Luxemburg, the Marine Museum in Paris, the Botanical Museum of Brussels, the House of Culture Moscow and the Shanghai museum of Fine Art. This is a great opportunity to own a piece of art by a prominent contemporary artist! Signed on verso, R. Texier, 1985 Ca Gigotte. HIs current contemporary work retails between $28,000 and $64,000 both at auction house like Christie's and Artcurial as well as galleries. His sculptures have even higher price points including two that reached $404,00 and $915,00. He also appeared on the 10 best auction results generated by French Contemporary artists for 2011. Since November 6, 2015, his red bronze sculpture: Angel Bear, more than 7 meters in height which portrays a bear with wings, is placed on the Gare du Nord square in Paris. It evokes the downward spiral of polar bears due to global warming, one of his favorite themes.
