What a rare find! It is a stunning acrylic on paper dated 1979 created by the late woman master Andrée Naudé, sold in good condition and unframed.
Naudé was schooled in Paris where she devoted herself to painting, attending several academies (Julian, Grande Chaumière, Scandinavia) and working in the studio of well known painters such as Waroquier, Fritz and later André Lhote. Between 1928 and 1931, Naudé exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Tuileries, the Autumn Salon, with the Grand Morin painters, and in Greece with a group of young painters working in Paris. She had lived in Haiti since 1931, and has established a studio in Tête de l'Eau which has become a gathering place for many of Haiti's women painters. With the creation of the Art Center in 1944 she began taking part in its exhibitions and also exhibited in Cap-Haitien with Tamara Baussan and Helen Schomberg. From 1963 to 1985, Naudé's work has been on permanent exhibit in numerous countries: Brazil, Chile, the Dominican Republic, the United States and Canada, where a solo exhibition of her work, 50 Years of Painting, took place in 1978, inaugurated by Pierre Monosiet. In Haiti, as well, her work is present in various permanent collections, notably at the Marassa and Mapou galeries. She has taken part in many exhibitions featuring female painters.
