DERCHAIN Philippe
"SEATED GENTLEMAN"

ca 1925

About

Displaying an exceptional use of color, the Seated Gentleman proves Philippe Derchain came to master every aspect of his artistic profession. The deep, earthy and harmonious red of the club sofa comes out amazingly against the vibrant, vivid striped wallpaper. Tonality in the red spectrum is notoriously hard to accomplish, yet Derchain makes it seem like child’s play. Throughout his life, Philippe Derchain stayed close to his Heimat, painting a lot of idyllic spots in the Ardennes. A remarkable departure from his usual landscape subject, Seated Gentleman shows the artist continued to perfect his skill. Don’t you find the gentlemen reminiscent of Oscar Wilde? If not, Wilde must have inspired other writers or artists, probably Derchain himself. He certainly portrays a man brimming with flair and confidence. The reading stand and (sketch)book on the sofa certainly add to the feeling that art and artist were both kept in high regard, and ought to be kept in high regard as well.
