Ithell COLQUHOUN. Guardian Angel. 1946-1947. Tempera... - Lot 76 - Leducq Maison de ventes aux enchères
Ithell COLQUHOUN. Guardian Angel. 1946-1947. Tempera on canvas (33 x 38 cm), framed. Superb painting on canvas by Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988), a biomorphic composition from the Gorgon series. A secretive, often obscured figure of British Surrealism, she took part in the 1936 exhibition, met André Breton in 1939 and experimented with automatism in its most diverse forms. Ideological dissensions soon put an end to her participation in the London group's activities. His archive recently moved to the Tate Modern Gallery. Provenance: Mayor Gallery, with handwritten inscription on frame - D. Filipacchi - Galerie 1900-2000. Exhibition: Alice's Children. Surrealist Painting in England 1930-1960, Galerie 1900-2000, 1982, no. 45. Reproduced in José Pierre's L'Univers surréaliste, 1983, p. 213.
