Young Kabyle in Burnous

Marcel Canet

1875 – 1959

Huile sur toile 55 X 28 cm marouflée sur panneau montée dans un cadre chêne plat à biseau doré 67 X 41 cm.
Circa 1930.
Le moirage que l’on voit sur les photos est dû à l’appareil photo et n’apparaît pas en vrai.
Se partageant entre la Bretagne et l’Algérie (dont les climats sont quelque peu opposés!), Marcel Canet eut une carrière constellée d’honneurs pour son œuvre tant bretonne qu’orientaliste.
Il nous livre ici un adorable portrait d’un petit Kabyle dont seul le visage émerge d’un immense burnous, traité de façon très pure typique de l’Art Déco, dans l’esprit d’un Boutet de Monvel, dans un format allongé qui focalise sur l’enfant.
N’hésitez pas à nous demander des photos ou renseignements supplémentaires par mail ou téléphone.

 

Marcel Canet

1875 – 1959

Oil on canvas 55 X 28 cm mounted on panel mounted in a flat oak frame with golden bevel 67 X 41 cm. Circa 1930. The moiré that we see in the photos is due to the camera and does not appear in real life. Divided between Brittany and Algeria (whose climates are somewhat opposite!), Marcel Canet had a career studded with honors for his work, both Breton and Orientalist. He gives us here an adorable portrait of a little Kabyle whose only face emerges from a huge burnous, treated in a very pure way typical of Art Deco, in the spirit of a Boutet de Monvel, in an elongated format that focuses on the child. Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
