Blanchard (lower left) Oil on canvas The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by LilianeCaffin Madaule. PROVENANCE Galerie Philippe Reichenbach, HoustonPrivate Collection, acquired from the above in 1960Thence by descent to the present owners CATALOGUE NOTE María Blanchard first met Juan Gris in Montparnasse in 1915 andwithin a year quickly adopted the Cubist idiom in her pictoriallexicon. At that time Gris introduced Blanchard to the milieu ofPicasso, Braque, Metzinger, and others. However, it was LéonceRosenberg who, in 1916, recognized Blanchard's talent and securedher financial future. "He was one of the famous art dealers, such as Durand-Ruel,Vollard, Kahnweiler, etc. He either gave me monthly arrears, orbought my paintings in advance, i.e. virtually the totality of myproduction. Don't forget that I worked slowly. The American buyers,such as Gertrude Stein and her brother, or Germans like WilhelmUhde, Russians with Tchoukine, and the often omitted Zborowski,Modigliani and Soutine's dealer, or again the Swiss Herman Ruff,did not visit my studio, which my painter friends were cautious notto tell him: i.e.: Gris, Rivera, Picasso and even Lhote" (LilianeCaffin Madaule, Catalogue raisonné des oeuvres de MaríaBlanchard , France, 2007, p. 49). However, if Rosenberg provided the financial support thatBlanchard required, it was Juan Gris who proved to be her artisticand emotional devotee. Blanchard states of her relationship withGris, "During several years, our friendship was like the symbiosisof our cubist style. I owe him a lot, but I think I gave him someform of sensibility in his rigor. "I knew [Gris] mainly since my last trip in 1915 thanks toJacques (Lipchitz) who was a close friend of his. In 1918, webecame more intimate. Gris was handsome with his very dark hair andskin, and very rare eyes with the whites having a blue hue; hisstub nose, thick black eyebrows reinforced the welcoming glance ofhis eyes, and full reassuring lips were like an offering. He wassuccessful with Rivera, but unlike Rivera, he know how to hide it.Our complicity fulfilled me" (op cit ., p. 50). "1916: I painted mainly on canvas and I still do, but at thattime Gris convinced me to paint on plywood. 'It's more solid andcheaper,' he said (letter of June 11, 1916). I have to admit toadmiring his work and vocation as a cubist from which he neverswerved. People used to say that he had become a cubist as onewould become a monk – all of this affected me, my head spun to thegreat benefit of my painting!... His influence in 1917, 1918, and1919 was a determining factor for my painting" (op. cit ., p.51). Confident in her ability to refract her subject matter withkaleidoscopic results, Femme assise is a textbook example ofSynthetic Cubism. Painted during Blanchard's apex working in thatgenre, the present work depicts a woman seated on a rattan chair infront of carved wainscoting that envelops the sitter from fourangles, whose vanishing points careen off the canvas. The thickapplication of paint and dizzying geometric patterns contribute tothe success of the composition. Devoid of breasts or other visualcues, the figure's shoulder-length hair and repeated floral patternin her dress are the only attributes that evidence the sitter'ssex.

Description:
65.3 by 50.4cm., 25 3/4 by 19 7/8 in. DESCRIPTION Painted in 1924. signed M Blanchard (lower left) oil on canvas The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by LilianeCaffin Madaule. PROVENANCE Jean Grimar, BrusselsGaudy Collection, Brussels CATALOGUE NOTE In the early 1920s Maria Blanchard's style changed radically.Close to Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris, and alreadyfamous for her poetic Cubist compositions, she decided to move awayfrom Cubism to a more expressive and figurative style. As shown in the present work she developed a very personalpalette with vivid contrasts between austere dark, metallic coloursand splashes of brilliant light. Drawing her inspiration from thepeople and children she met in the street, she never used a modeland painted her strong and powerful compositions frommemory.
