Details

A Breton Woman from Pontivy (with umbrella) is a print by the prolific and multi- disciplinary French artist Georges Geo- Fourrier 1898 - 1966. Part of a series of postcards - carte postale BREIZ GWECHALL, it dates from 1928.

It was published as one of a series of ten in the 1930s. Much of the artist's work explores the people, traditions and landscapes of Brittany, where he made his home.

"Femme de Pontivy" is one of a series of Breton country folk in traditional costume, portrayed in Fourrier's typically strong graphic style with deliberately limited colour palette to reinforce the strong line.

His work is highly collectible and whilst contemporary reprints are available this is an early image.

The print measures 6.5" x 9.5" and is in an attractive wooden frame (no glass). The paper is slightly foxed but this does not detract from its striking charm.
The artist's signature is at the base and his dramatic monogram to the centre of the image.

It has the gallery label from where it was purchased - L'atelier Alleaume Caen and a pencil signature M. Julienne on the rear -possibly the framer or the original purchaser?

Packed securely for transit.

It is such a pleasure when a box is opened and the contents exceed one's expectations. I'm so pleased with the quality and energy of this print. It makes me feel connected to Michelangelo and his process of planning David. Well packaged, shipped promptly. Thank you.
