It was a meeting with Maurice Denis and Paul Sérusier in 1908 that influenced the young Souverbie to take up an artistic career. Led by these two members of the Nabis group, Souverbie enrolled at the Académie Ranson in 1916, where he befriended Bonnard, Vuillard and Vallotton. Cubist tendencies were apparent in his work of the 1920s as a result of his contact with the work of Braque. However, his sensuousness allowed him to combine the cubist vocabulary with a more traditional naturalism in order to create his voluptuous, classical nudes. His monumental figures, his taste for allegorical subject matter and simplicity of composition reveal his interest in the great French classical painter, Poussin. Souverbie\‘s classicism does not only relate to seventeenth century tradition but equally to the laws of perfect beauty posed by the Greeks, and featured in the classical beauty of his young wife. It is her that is the model for the female figures in many of his paintings. His style lent itself to monumental painting and when he became head teacher at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1945, an atelier of mural painting was created for him. In 1925 Souverbie was under contract with the Galerie Vavin-Raspail, which hosted the Section d\‘Or exhibition that year, bringing him into contact with Lhote, Gleizes, Picasso, Marcoussis and many other members of the Paris avant-garde. After a first one-man-show at Vavin-Raspail in 1926 Souverbie went on to have a show of fifty-four cubist paintings at the Bernheim-Jeune Gallery in 1929, which established him as an important figure on the Paris inter war art scene.

§ Jean Souverbie

(French, 1891-1981)

Femme à l'antique assise

signed lower right "Souverbie '29"

oil on canvas

h:37 w:53 cm

Provenance:

From the collection of Dr J H Twiston Davies.

Jean Souverbie was an avante-garde painter born in Paris, 1891, who became Professor, and later Head of Studio, at the Fine Arts Academy in Paris. His work was influenced by the works of the Nabis Group, which included such artists as Pierre Bonnard and Maurice Dennis; Souverbie had met Dennis whilst studying under Jean-Paul Laurens at the start of his career. During the 1920s, Cubist tendencies became apparent in Souverbie's work as a result of his contact with Georges Braque's work, whilst incorporating a Fauvist colour palette. This blend of inspirational sources gave Souverbie's work a wholly original and graceful aesthetic.

Under glass and condition appears good. Paint applied very thickly in some areas including white border. Scratches and indents appear to be part of the artist's technique.
