André Brasilier, a distinguished French landscape painter with a languid, lyrical style, has staying power–his career has spanned six decades. Natural beauty abounds in his pastoral scenes rendered almost abstract and surreal. In the artist’s own words, he distills nature: “I always try to give the quintessence of a subject, to say a great deal with a little, like Japanese artists who focus on asceticism and simplicity.” Los Angeles Modern Auctions is pleased to offer the painting Les Régates (The Regatta or The Boat Races) at the May 17 Modern Art & Design Auction.
