The handsome guy

Jacques Burel

1922 – 2000

Oil on canvas 55 X 38 cm, signed and dated 8 51 (for August 1951), mounted in a flocked frame of the time 70 X 54 cm. Canvas fixed on a board as a frame, a little cleaning and varnish to be expected.

Characteristic of this time when the actors like Lino Ventura or Alain Delon embodied this assumed virility. The author (who looks like him enough to ask himself the question of the self-portrait) realized it while he was living in Algeria where he spent a large part of his life, teaching drawing from 1949 to 1961. Another facet of his work is devoted to Brittany, which was a constant source of inspiration to him. Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
