Gypsy Girl, by Pedro Creixams (1893-1965) Oil on Canvas.

The gypsy girl motif is evocative of this painter’s roots in Catalonia. His brushwork is loose but saturated in bold color, animating the composition and highlighting the lushness of the sitter’s delicate mouth and her coy, inviting gaze. Signed lower right. Framed in modern blue and gold French frame.

Commentary

"After having finished his studies in Barcelona, he decided to pursue a theatrical career which brought him to Paris in 1918, where he started working as a typographer. In 1921, he switched to painting and started to exhibit his paintings at the Salons d Automne, des Independants and des Tuileries in Paris. He soon adopted Paris as his home, and rubbed shoulders with artists from Eastern Europe, Russia and the Mediterranean countries who were either fleeing religious and political persecution at home, or wanted to be in the cultural and artistic capital of the world at that time. He was also a successful illustrator, working with major writers and poets like Charles Baudelaire.
He was introduced to Paul Guillaume, the most important art dealer in France at the time, who exhibited his work alongside that of Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani and Vlaminck. More recently, Creixams work was displayed in two major exhibitions in Perpignan, France in 2012 as well as at the Sorbonne University in Paris in 2011.
Creixmans chose to depict primarily themes with Spanish motifs in his paintings, such as women with fans, harlequins and gypsies, acrobats and guitarists whom he painted in broad brushstrokes of vivid hues. His work is very painterly, and his use of bold color contrasts heightens the emotional content of his compositions.
