Jean Jansem - Figurative art

“Jean Jansem was a French-Armenian painter. Known for his washy representational paintings of nude women, still lifes, and figures, Jansem painted with a variety of media that included gouache, watercolor, ink, and oil in a stylized and textural aesthetic. Born on March 9, 1920 in Bursa, Turkey, he fled his home country and Greece in his early childhood, eventually settling in Paris, where he began to paint. Bolstered by study at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in the 1930s, his early work was concerned with his shifting national identity and uniquely global outlook. Jansem work received critical attention throughout his career, garnering honors like induction into the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 1953, knighthood by the French Legion of Honour in 2003, and reception of a Medal of Honor from the President of Armenia in 2010. He died in Paris, France on August 27, 2013.”

Mixed media paintings James Coignard

«James Coignard, painter, ceramist, sculptor and etcher, was born in Tours in 1925. At the age of 23 and after a brief career in the French administration, he discovers the landscapes of the French Riviera and decides to study at Arts décoratifs in Nice. Four years later, he quits his job at the administration to commit himself entirely to his artistic career. The encounter with Paul Hervieu in 1950 is decisive. His collaboration with gallery Hervieu made him known in artistic circles, nationally and internationally and then particularly in Scandinavia. At the beginning of his career, art critics label James Coignard as a member of Ecole de Paris. Soon, his painting and ceramic distances themselves from those of his colleagues and he goes it alone. At the beginning of the sixties, he starts to work with glass but the technical turning point occurs in 1968 when his friend Henri Goetz discovers a new etching technique, using carborundum. Etching then becomes central in his work. At the same time, his career takes off internationally. He travels a lot, especially to Sweden and USA where he lives during a few years. 1978, James Coignard participates in the creation of the etching studio Pasnic, with which he starts a long collaboration. During the eighties, he shares his time between Paris and the French Riviera and takes an interest in artist’s books and publishing issues. He exhibits now all over the world, and is acknowledged as one of the greatest painter-etchers of his time. Until his decease in 2008, James Coignard was a prolific painter, sculptor and etcher and leaves behind an immense work.»(.jamescoignard.net)«In both his mixed media canvases and his works on paper, Coignard also achieves a deep, heavy texture that is another distinctive trait of his art. He is also an accomplished sculptor as well, working with such varied materials as bronze and glass. Coignard is a compulsive worker, producing entire series of paintings and prints in intense sessions that sometimes last up to three months. His methods are meticulous, in the tradition of the Old Masters. He starts each piece with dramatic swashes of blue, red, yellow, green and black that are his signature colors.»(elliottgallery.com)

Italian Modern Art Fausto Pirandello

Fausto Pirandello (17 June 1899 – 30 November 1975) was an Italian painter belonging to the modern movement of the Scuola romana (Roman School). He was the son of Nobel laureate Luigi PirandelloAfter a short experience in Paris, where he met the most important artistic personalities of the time between 1920 and 1930, Pirandello entered the movement of Scuola Romana, distinguishing himself for originality and solitary exploration. His painting tends towards a quotidian realism manifested at times in the more unpleasant and pitiless aspects of life, expressed through a dense and thorny pictorial matter. His vision is an intellectualist one, which however translates even the most brutal naturalist datum into a sort of magic realism with an archaic and metaphysical taste.Pirandello's style goes from cubism, to tonalism, to realist-expressionist forms: Important in this period was his participation to the activities of literary magazine «Corrente di Vita». Pirandello's work became an impressive testimony of a poet who interpreted in painting the analysing and psychological spirit of his father Luigi.Pirandello changed his style around the 1950s, re-absorbing influences from the cubists (i.e., Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso), and thus living the troubled and difficult phase affecting the whole Italian painting art, between «realism» and «neocubism», yet achieving through the deformations of an expressionist approach, original formal solutions in between abstraction and figuration His paintwork sought a new definition, with a strong reference to a cubist syntax in the colour tassellations and in those compositions where the narrative datum gradually loses importance.
