Robert Ladou, Untitled No. 9, French Artist



A mixed-media work on paper by French Artist Robert Ladou (1929-2014), presented under Museum Glass in a custom frame, circa 1970s. Robert Ladou is a Postwar & Contemporary painter who is recognized worldwide for his equestrian portraiture. We have acquired a body of his work that represents his abilities in abstract paintings, influenced by his time living and working in the Fountainbleu Forest in the 1970s. During his lifetime this prolific artist created one thousand and eight hundred works ranging from portraiture, abstracts, still lifes and textile patterns. Artist bio: Robert Ladou, born in Lyon, France was interested in two things from a young age; painting and horses. He was an amateur equestrian who rode and painted while he served in the military. Fascinated by the silk textiles of Lyon, Ladou began his post military career creating scarf patterns for Pierre Balmain, Lanvin and Nina Ricci. During early adulthood, he fell from his horse and was seriously injured, ceasing his equestrian career. Rather than giving up riding entirely, Ladou put horses at the center of his artwork and in time gained fame as a primary figure in equestrian portraiture. Ladou found his inspiration in the landscapes of Japanese, the fashion houses of Paris and the Fontainebleau forest where he maintained his studio until his death in 2014.
