Paris Salon Painter Emile Grau-Sala

April 16, 2015

Lot 148, Emile Grau-Sala, Le Paddock,

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is pleased to present two lush oil on canvas paintings by Emile Grau-Sala. Much of the artist’s significant professional period was spent in Paris: he was involved with the Paris Salons, and was associated with the School of Paris “Young Painting” artists. Grau-Sala was influenced by both his contemporaries in France, and painters of older generations, such as Raoul Dufy, and great impressionists, particularly Manet and Renoir. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York holds two Grau-Sala paintings in its collection; one from the 1960s is similarly-themed to Lot 148, Le Paddock (1969), on offer in the May 17 Modern Art & Design Auction.
