the polo game

Marcel Burtin
1902 – 1979

Pastel, 50×64 cm (19.69 x25, 2 in), Signature, Frame
Rare topic  by Marcel Burtin who worked in a gradual simplification of forms until almost an abstraction. Here, the work a little old, circa 1950, is still very figurative and animated motion. The sheet has a trace of fold and a small tear at the top left. Old frame painted  wood a little rough.
