About this item

In 'Reclining Nude Young Woman' (circa 1950s), mixed media on paper, Pailhès sketched this beautiful young woman reclining in bed. Although her face is not visible, the artist has captured her posture and body language which shows she is certainly deep in thought. A disappointed lover? A troubled future? The viewer can decide. Whatever her feelings, this is a thoughtful work of art of a beautiful young woman. This piece of history is for you and your space. In excellent vintage condition. Original frame with new mount and glass. Signed in lower right hand corner in artist's hand: 'F Pailhès'.

About the Artist: French artist Fred Pailhès, (1907-1991) born in Le Havre, is primarily known for his paintings of ports and seascapes including Marseille and Nice in the south of France and Le Havre and Honfleur in the north. He is also known for his striking portraits of bohemians, vagabonds and everyday people, capturing humorous and sometimes strange expressions of people in the street. He loved sailor bars, music halls, lost souls - women and their eroticism, whatever he saw as long as he found movement and colour. Saucy scenes of cabarets and bistros and, of course, women are depicted in his art. There are innumerable drawings of women and dancers - in particular, Loulou, Pailhès' favourite from the Folies Bergères cabaret in Paris. 

Pailhès' work has been exhibited at the Musée Montparnasse and at the Chateaux Borély in Marseille. Pailhes died in 1991. Since 1986 Pailhès' works have been auctioned over 700 times.
