About

FRUIT BASKET is an original hand drawn lithograph by the Egyptian French artist Laurent Marcel Salinas printed using hand lithography techniques on archival Arches printmaking paper. FRUIT BASKET is an interior still life composition comprised of a country wicker basket set on a wooden tabletop, overflowing with fresh fruits - lemon, pear, grapes, plums, citrus fruit, an empty wine goblet to the left, drawn in a simple painterly manner with watercolor strokes in complementary tones of blues, warm yellow, tan browns, greens and a touch of purple. Marcel Charles Laurent Salinas 'Marcel Salinas': Born in Egypt, Marcel Charles Laurent Salinas was the son of a French mother and an Italian father. Art was not his first vocation. Salinas studied law in France and practiced this profession for more than a decade. He received his law degree from the University of Aix-en-Provence. While there, he meticulously studied the works of that area's most famous artist, Paul Cezanne. Around 1945 Marcel Salinas abandoned the bar and became a full time artist in Paris. There he studied under the painter and art theorist, Andre Lhote (1885-1962). Shortly thereafter he began exhibiting his art at the Salon des Surindependants, and elsewhere in Paris. In 1955 Marcel Salinas was introduced to lithography and began working as a lithographic printer. Within several years he was considered to be one of the finest printers in Paris and many famous contemporary artists sought his skill and advice. In 1969 Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) asked Salinas to create several lithographs based upon his "Imaginary Portraits" paintings. Picasso was not looking for 'copies' of his portraits but rather for new interpretations of them. For the following three years the two artists worked closely together, creating twenty-nine "Imaginary Portraits" in lithography. Marcel Salinas moved to St. Louis, Missouri, in 1995. Two years later a major retrospective of his paintings, drawings and prints was held in that city at the 20th Century Masters Gallery. Previous one man exhibitions had taken place in Paris, New York, Alexandria and Copenhagen. Marcel Salinas also served as artist-in-residence at the Foundation Francois Desnoyer, France, and at the Paule Mikkelsen Minde Karslov, Denmark.
