Description About
Jean Lurçat " Eaux noires " [Dark waters]
Aubusson tapestry woven by the Goubely workshop
With its bolduc signed by the artist.
Circa 1955
132 x 219 cm

This work shows a specifically decorative art of image making. In a very personal symbolic iconography, cosmogonic (plants, fish, 4 elements...), stylized vegetal, animal, stand out against a background without perspective (voluntarily far from painting), and intended to share a vision both poetic and philosophical.
"Eaux noires" is one of the many tapestry inspired by the 1954 trip to Brazil of the artist: plants and fish exotic, (a fairly common association at Lurçat), without the usual butterflies, mix in a beautiful colourful harmony.
