Description:
Shafic Abboud (Lebanon, 1926-2004) Untitled oil on canvas, framed signed and dated (on the verso), executed in 1959 70 x 50cm (27 9/16 x 19 11/16in). Footnotes Provenance: Property from the collection of Raymonde Cazenave, Paris. Acquired directly from the above by the present owner. "The most difficult part for people to accept is that painting is not a reflection on an object, but something which has been lived, a making. We are involved on the first day that we traced a line and laid down a colour on a surface, and the painter's questioning revolves around these facts. It is from there, that the vanity of believing in a random intervention in the artist's sphere of theories suggested by the outside world, comes from." - Shafic Abboud Shafic Abboud is widely recognized as one of the most important and innovative artists of Lebanese modernism.The present work comes from perhaps his most creative, expressive and important period. "Composition" was executed in 1959, the same year that he was invited to participate in the first Biennale de Paris, and the present work bears clear similarities with the monumental Saison II, which was the painting chosen for the Biennale. The majority of Abboud's work encompasses a abstract studies of the interplay between colour and light, all of which are rationalized through contrasts of tone. The present piece is typical of works executed in a more exuberant palette. In utilizing rich, volcanic and coral tones alleviated by lighter strokes of bold, bright colour, Abboud aims to recreate both our ocular and emotional perception of tonal variations Abboud once commented that "I only stop when both colour and light match. I cannot escape from colour, it is my fate and nature - my eyes must have been dazzled for ever. The impact between two colours creates light, but whether it be true or false, this "theory" does make me paint". Ultimately it is through light that we can appreciate the observable world. All human endeavors, creations, dwellings and interactions rest on the crucial and fundamental harmony between the physiology of our eye and natural light. It is this most primal relationship which Abboud exploits in his work, to great aesthetic effect.
