LOÏS HUTTON (1893-1972) Avant-Garde Art Deco Watercolour 1920 Boats at Dinard, Brittany 1920 A rare watercolour of boats at Dinard in Brittany by one of the most influential creative geniuses of her time, Lois Hutton. Lois was essentially an avant-garde dancer, choreographer and costume designer. However, she also taught art at her summer schools, maintaining privileged relationships with Pablo Picasso, Jean Renoir, André Breton, and Salvador Dali. Her Anglo-Saxon origins allowed her to forge very close links with two English painters working in Saint Paul de Vence: John Duncan Fergusson and Leslie Hunter, whose influences are often found in Lois’s work. Lois Hutton was an emblematic figure for dancers of the interwar period. English in origin, she made her debut in Paris, before opening "L’autre Théâtre" in Saint Paul de Vence a few years later. Scott Fitzgerald, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce are among those who frequented the essential theatre of the “French Riviera” Lois’s life story is outlined in Richard Emerson’s book “Rhythm & Colour” a copy of which is included in the sale. Chapter VI outlines Lois’s stay in Dinard in 1920 when this watercolour was painted. Provenance: Purchased at auction in a sale of her works, copy invoice available to purchaser. Condition. Colours strong, some minor nibbles to the edges. Sold unframed. Size 23cm x 29cm
