Gaëtan Dumas (1879-1950) - Desnudo

Description
Gaëtan Dumas (1879-1950) - Desnudo
Oil on canvas - Hand signed - 1930-1932

Important work by Gaëtan Dumas from the sale of the funds of the artist’s studio.

This work was represented at the 1932 Autumn Salon in Paris.

The frame presents several impacts and some pieces are missing, so it would be advisable to change it.

The painting presents some areas with cracked paint (it can be seen in a couple of photos) due to the amount of paint that the artist used for the ‘impasto’ of the painting.

Referenced painter, present in several museums, Gaëtan Dumas, born in Marseille and deceased in Bordeaux. Painter of nude portraits, landscapes and still lifes. He exhibited his works in the Salon des Indépendants, the Autumn Salon and in the Tuileries. In the Autumn Salon he exhibited a retrospective of his works during his life, and posthumously in 1952 and 1960. Some of his works are preserved in the museums of Bordeaux, Dijon, Courbevoie, Marseille, Meudon, Paris, Troyes and Toulouse.

Note: The work will not be sent to Taiwan because it contains wood.
