Focus on the work: The work was exhibited in April 1938 at the Independent National Fair which was held 76 Faubourg Saint-Honoré and founded the year before by the dissidents of the national society of fine arts. Journalist and art critic Raymond Escholier talks about the painting in one of his articles on the living room, referring to Rembrandt: "Lancelot Ney, and his curious operation, populated by white ghosts, to bring the famous lesson of Anatomy , from the master of Amsterdam ”. The numerous studies on sale in the gallery for this table show the importance that the artist attached to this "operation".


Why we love the artist : We love the atmosphere of the Lancelot Ney ink landscapes that synthesize the artist's cubist and abstract influences. His straight, nervous and precise trait makes us think of Pablo Picasso but also of the first abstract works of Piet Mondrian composed only of vertical and horizontal features. In addition, its portraits are very realistic and expressive.
Commentary by the expert and biography : Lancelot Ney (László Ney) is a Hungarian painter who was very successful very quickly, he became a caricaturist known from his youth. At the Hungarian College of Fine Arts, his teacher was István Réti. At the age of 22, he left for Germany and met Moholy-Nagy and through him Kurt Schwitters (German painter, sculptor and poet who embodied the individualist and anarchist spirit of the Dada movement). The abstract painter and art critic Michel Seuphor was one of his friends, he was the one who introduced him to Piet Mondrian. A simple, sincere and honest artist, he knew how to give a renewed interest to the portrait at a time when photography plunged him into disgrace. The artist has a real sensitivity which gives his landscapes this very particular atmosphere where calm and serenity reign. During his career, he participated in numerous fairs and exhibitions (personal and collective) all over the world. His works are present in Museums in France and abroad.
