Sale price€780,00

Colorful vintage oil painting by artist Paul Dufrane (1922-1999),’Les Remparts’, (the walls) 1978.

Paul Dufrane (1922 – 1999) was a Belgian surrealist painter and collagist. He received his education at Sint-Lucas and at the Academy in Brussels. Initially debuting in non-figurative art, he soon gravitated towards surrealism and eventually transitioned into figuration. His compositions exude symbolism and poetry. As an artist, he stands as a prime example of “fantasmagie,” a pseudo-surrealist movement that emerged on the fringes of surrealism in Belgium in 1958 and is also referred to as the “fantastic” movement.

Later, he became a member of the Coll’Art artists’ group, which brought together various collage artists. Between 1971 and 1973, they organized several exhibitions in Belgium.

In terms of both theme and color utilization, this piece stands somewhat apart from Dufrane’s body of work, yet remains particularly intriguing.
