Description

"Tete a la Poupee" by James Coignard.  Color gravure au carborundum etching and collage, excellent condition, archivally matted, mounted on card stock.  (33 5/8in H x 25 3/8 W)  James Coignard was born in Tours, France in 1925.  He entered the Ecole des Arts Cecoratifs in Nice in 1948 at age 23.  At around this time Coignard came into contact with Matisse and shortly later discovered the modernists' handling of color via Georges Braque and Marc Chagall.  His contact in the late 1950's with a number of Spanish artists and his special fascination for Catalan sculptures and frescoes proved decisive for his artistic development.  Coignard's first Paris exhibition came in 1959 and subsequently in many countries.  His work is well represented in both private and publick collections, including the Guggenheim Museum in NY and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco.
