Aubusson tapestry woven by the Picaud workshop.
With signed label.
Marc Petit met Jean Lurçat in 1954, went to Aubusson in 1955, exhibited his work for the first time at La Demeure in 1956, became a member of the A.P.C.T. (Association des Peintres-Cartonniers de Tapisserie) in 1958. After this lightning start to his career, he produced hundreds of cartoons, in a style all his own, where long-legged waders and acrobats wend in and out of dreamscapes.
In this piece we are invited into a strange, threatening and uncertain (as is suggested by the title) underwater world whose sharp and piercing forms speak of danger.
