Simon CHAYE

Fraîcheur (coolness)

 

 

Aubusson tapestry woven in the Legoueix workshop.
With label signed by the artist, n°6/6.
Circa 1970.

 

 

It was in 1953 that Jean Picart le Doux proposed to Chaye to become his assistant and encouraged him to design tapestry cartoons : he would produce numerous bucolic cartoons, but also views of Normandy (Mont Saint Michel, Honfleur, regattas,…) whence he came.

Chaye’s aquatic inspiration and the brightly apt choice of colour chosen for this cartoon impart the sensation reflected in the title, despite the medium.
