"Scene from Italy," Fabulous Scene w/ Woman and Jar in Coral, Deep Blue and Rose

US$28,000

About

An early masterwork by Jean Lambert-Rucki, this brilliantly-hued oil painting from 1919 depicts a female figure carrying a jar on her head, surrounded by the arches, stairways and sun-baked walls of an Italian village, all expressed in strong, Fauvist colors: cerulean blue, coral and pink, burnt sienna and ivory. Like many of his paintings, the artist loved to show the interplay between the human figure and her shadow, and here he also shows a playfulness with the geometries of the scene: circles, half-circles, arches and rectangles, all in Cubist interplay. Lambert-Rucki was a native of Poland and studied there at first, but like many artists from Eastern Europe, he gravitated to Paris, and fell into the circle of Leopold Survage, Moise Kisling, Amedeo Modigliani and Chaim Soutine, among others. Six years before this painting, Lambert-Rucki participated in the 1913 Salon d'Automne in Paris, and by 1919, he was represented by both art dealer Paul Guillaume and by Léonce Rosenberg at the Galerie de l'Effort Moderne. He became known for both his paintings and his sculptures, which showed the clear influence of Brancusi. The medium is oil on panel. (Dimensions include the frame; painting itself is 28 inches high by 23 inches wide.)
