Raymond Trameau (1897-1976), Harlequin and Horse, Oil on Wooden Board.

List Price $7,600

Trameau uses a bold palette of radiant colors that create a vibrant energy in his composition, while flattening figures and forms against the picture surface of the canvas. The painting emanates a rhythmic pulse that derives from his bold tonal contrasts, and his vigorous brushwork and gestural style add movement and intensity to the overall pictorial surface.
The subject of the harlequin and horse is a Spanish theme that was treated extensively by Picasso and other Iberian painters during the early part of the XXth century.

"Trameau started painting as of 1914 at the School of Applied and Decorative Arts in Paris, experimenting in various media, including enamel, clay, plaster and oil. He decided to focus exclusively on painting in 1920, and was accepted into the Ateliers d’Art in Paris.
His figurative compositions were exhibited with great success between the two world wars, in galleries and major exhibitions in Paris as well as abroad. He was a regular contributor the Salon des Independants, and showed with a group of artists called Musicalistes (like Kandinsky, they sought to reveal the relationship between color and its expressive musicality).
Trameau’s painting became more abstract as of 1947, and he would transpose his non-figurative compositions onto enamel and cloisonné, using the techniques he learned from the Renaissance masters. His works were highly successful among members of the French bourgeoisie, as he continued to experiment with different venues for his artistic output.
