Mid-century Oil Painting, 'Metro.' Jean-Pierre GRÜN (1935-2014)
Mid-century oil painting, 'Metro,' byJean-Pierre GRÜN (1935-2014). Thickly applied paint depicting, possibly, a Metro carriage or, perhaps, a bar of the same name. Three characters stand together on the left, one reading. In the foreground a man rests his pink arm along the back of an orange booth. On the right a woman appears to be holding a baby. Lights dangle from the ceiling. The colours here and the thickness of the paint are exceptional. Hues of Germolene pink and almost edible flashes of tangerine.
Verso inscribed, 'Gift to the friends of the autumn salon.'
