The painter, theorist and teacher André Lhote immersed himself in the artistic life of Paris during the interwar period. As head of the Academy André Lhote in Montparnasse, he taught, among others, Tamara de Lempicka and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Influenced by Fauvism and Cubism, André Lhote developed his own style. He reduces objects and people to abstract forms, but these do not lose their figurative charge.
De Volkskrant, the Dutch newspaper, wrote an extensive article about this find, which is included in the artist's official Catalog Raisonné.
The artwork has been sold.
