Original Artwork & Paintings for Sale

Guy Bourdin, 1928 - 1991

Clean watercolour on pen and ink 45 x 56 cm very nicely framed original under glass (see Image 1 above). A gift from the artist to the distinguished British photographer, Roger Mayne. q.v.,  (1929-2014). Inscribed lower right : "A Monsieur Roger Maine.  18.1.1955. G. Bourdin" (see Image 3 below). Guy Bourdin, 1928 - 1991 (q.v.), was the foremost French fashion photographer of the post-War era and worked most notably for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar from 1955. The Artist would have been 27 at the time this was painted (see Image 4 right). Photographer Roger Mayne also at the beginning of his career and a year younger at 26 (Image 4 left). It is worth noting that a  60 x 96 cm single photograph by Bourdin for French Vogue, March 1972, realised £50,000 at Christie's London in May 2017. The style is very Picasso (see Image 2, the girl's face). We have only been able to locate two other  comparable artworks (non photographic) by this artist. Provenence: Roger Mayne estate. More information on request with pleasure. No shipping surcharges worldwide on this item.
