Lurçat (Jean)
Ɵ Le Targui, original gouache signed. 1926 (30.7 x 23.5 cm), framed. Original gouache in color, signed and dated, preparatory study for the 1927 oil painting, one of the most important by the painter then at his peak. Le Targui is one of Jean Lurçat's landmark works, at the height of his painting career in the second half of the 1920s. It corresponds to a period when the painter traveled to North Africa, at the invitation of Marie Cuttoli, who lived partly in Philippeville, Algeria. The present gouache is probably the first completed version, a few months before the 1927 painting. Provenance: Henri Laugier and Marie Cuttoli.
