About

EMIILIO GRAU SALA Spanish, 1911 - 1975 LE MOULIN DE LA GALETTE signed Grau Sala (lower right) oil on canvas 59-1/4 X 67-1/4 inches (150.5 X 170 cm.) framed: 62-1/2 X 70-1/4 inches (158 X 177.5 cm.) Julián Grau Santos, son of the artist and expert on Emilio Grau Sala's work, on a visit to this gallery commented the following: "this painting "Le Moulin de la Galette" is among my father´s two most important paintings". PROVENANCE Private Belgium Collector This work by Emilio Grau Sala entitled "Le Moulin de la Galette" was painted around 1935, when it had not yet been definitively established in Paris, but traveled repeatedly to the city of lovers to enjoy it, until in 1936 he decided to settle in Paris . He paints with some nostalgic taste, the famous café of "Le Moulin de la Galette", where impressionist and post-impressionist artists found themselves in the middle of Montmatre. The artist Toulouse-Lautrec, the father of posterism, can be identified in this work, in the center of the painting. His palette is made in pastel colors and his great female and male figures tell us the relationship between them, their complicity, the meeting place where they were painters, poets, etc. and dressmakers, aspiring prostitutes to model artists and young people with their mothers in search of a boyfriend. This painting is a testimony of a very important Parisian artistic stage and has the flavor of the few works of his first stage in Paris with well-defined and well-interpreted figures, with a very original composition and a pastel palette. Emilio Grau Sala came from a family of artists. He was born in Barcelona in 1911 and his father, a good cartoonist, had been one of the promoters of the "Salon des Humanistes" and made his exhibitions normally in the Parés Hall. His first works were exhibited at the Salon des Independents, in the years 1930-33. His works can be found in the Museums of the Villa de Paris, L'Ile de France Museum, at the Château de Sceaux, Honfleur Museum, La Rochelle Museum, Barcelona Museum, Tossa de Mar Museum, Philadelphia Museum, Museum of Buenos Aires, etc. EXHIBITION Museo de Arte Moderno, Madrid Galería Muller, Buenos Aires Dindley Gallery, New York Outdoor and Autumn Halls, Paris Galería Charpentier, París Monique de Groote, París Sala Parés, Barcelona Sala Rovira, Barcelona Sala Syra, Barcelona
