Expert commentary: Influenced by Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Jules Pascin, Claude Venard and Bernard Buffet, the artist can be described as Post-cubist and expressionist. Michel De Alvis excels in still life but he is also very talented in nudes. Passionate about travel (France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Turkey…) he gives us in his works these fabulous Mediterranean landscapes that he loves so much. The artist uses all the techniques and varies the supports to better put them at the service of the subject. His thick line, which sometimes tends to slightly distort reality, especially in his still lifes and nudes, gives an impression of movement and provokes an emotional reaction in the viewer. The use of pure colors and their juxtaposition reinforce these effects and give a life of their own to the elements making up the work.


Biography: Michel de Alvis (1936-2019) was born in Paris in the 10th arrondissement. Son of a piano maker and a fashion designer, he spent his childhood in Montmartre among painters and artists. Nicknamed the painter of Paris, he lived in the 18th arrondissement near Montmartre and will have a workshop all his life at the foot of the Buttes Chaumont. After studying graphic design, he took drawing lessons and enrolled in various workshops including that of Daniel du Janerand. The artist will draw and paint all his life Paris which inspired him these few lines:


“Paris my city, my beautiful city, eternal and yet so changing and disturbing but never disappointing to which I always come back despite the beauties discovered elsewhere. Paris, my beautiful love, that I have traveled from North to South, from East to West, from the top of its towers to its little courtyards, Paris which pulsates and which beats, Paris do you feel my heart beating in the 'unison? "
