Stael

£18.99

Product description

Raised by Russian emigrants in Brussels Nicholas De Stael began to study painting at the age of 16. he left his adopted family to travel first in Spain and then Morocco. He lived in Paris during the Occupation , accompanied by his sick wife and little girl. He went through a period of extreme poverty during which time he discovered abstract painting. His work was first shown by Jeanne Bucher in 1944 gaining recognition by critics and friends. Liberated from the constraint of geometric forms he gradually discovered the power of pure colour and free form, later returning to a more naturalistic form. Unexpectedly and incomprehensibly on march 16 1955 he committed suicide by jumping from his studio which was situated on ramparts overlooking the Mediterranean. This book analyses his work during his brief existence.

Used hard back book with original dust cover in good condition. Signs of wear on dust cover but otherwise in good clean condition.
