Aubusson tapestry woven by the Pinton workshop.
Complete with certificate of origin signed by the artist, n° 3 of 6.
Michèle Van Hout le Beau designed numerous cartoons in the 1960’s and 70’s, working in collaboration with several workshops in Aubusson and receiving some state commissions (she participated along with Soulages, Lagrange, Alechinsky and others in the decoration of the transatlantic Boeing 707’s for Air France). Her style often involves the use of strident colours (very evocative of the 1970’s) from which emerge foliage, stylised human or animal figures
This cartoon, doubtless more recent, is completely abstract and employs more muted colours, with an interesting relief effect created by a mix of textures (the black shading being raised above the other colours).
