Paul BRET (1902-1956) Agnès 1945 A striking post impressionist portrait of Agnes, dated 1945 and presented in a magnificent gilt frame. Signed, dated and inscribed in both French and Greek verso. Bret studied at the School of Decorative Arts and the National Academy of Fine Arts Paris under the foremost artists of the period. He received a “mention” for the Grand Prize of Rome. Further success followed with a bursary to travel to broaden his experience. He travelled to Greece where he returned on eleven occasions. When he was forty he threw off the shackles of academic traditional art and developed his own style of painting and colour palette. He combined gold with turquoise to form light green which he then used extensively. This shade can be seen in the portrait of Agnes. Bret exhibited extensively, including at the Nationale Independents, the Autumn Salon, Carnegie Institute and the Royal Academy London. Condition Excellent original condition. Tight 2 inch crack top left. Two hair line cracks across the frame top corners. Size 46cm x 37cm (69cm x 60cm framed) 18 x 14.5 inches (27 x 23.5 inches framed)
