Signed Fumeron on label attached to the reverse
Wool tapestry by Pinton Frères
René Fumeron (1921-2004) designed his first cartoons (he would ultimately make over 500) in the 1940’s, in collaboration with the Pinton workshop; he was then commissioned on numerous occasions by the state before participating in the decoration of the ocean liner ”France”. His work was figurative to begin with and influenced by Lurçat, then turned towards abstraction, before coming back to a style characterized by colorful figurative and realistic depictions from the 1980’s onwards.
An abstract cartoon, typical of the artist’s work bears witness to the unceasing originality of his creativity.
