René FUMERON

Hamlet

 

 

Aubusson tapestry woven by the Pinton workshop.
With label.
Circa 1970.

 

 

Fumeron designed his first cartoons (he would ultimately make over 500) in the 1940’s, in collaboration with the Pinton workshop, he was then commissioned on numerous occasions by the state before participating in the decoration of the ocean liner “France”. His work was figurative to begin with and influenced by Lurçat, then turned towards abstraction, before coming back to a style characterised by colourful figurative and realistic depictions from the 1980’s onwards.

 

Sandwiched between two figurative phases, Fumeron allowed himself an abstract period : his references swing between Matégot (for the style) and Prassinos (for the reference to Shakespeare’s plays). The colour scheme, here using bright acidic colours is intensely personal.
