c.1950's Mixed Media City Scene on Paper, Signed by Edouard Righetti

One of our favorite pieces recently curated on a trip to Paris. Edouard Righetti was a Swiss born Mid-Century artist (b.1924) known primarily for his work in painting and printmaking. Though he was born Swiss, he moved away early in life and spent most of his life living and creating in France. He was known for his stylistic depictions of peasants, animals, landscapes and the sadness of suburbia. Righetti participated in numerous Salons and exhibitions internationally during his career and is widely collected. Righetti often signed his art "Ed" as you will note on this work. This energetic and exquisite mixed media work is a snapshot into the suburban landscape of historical France that he is widely known for.

The bottom of the work is signed, as well as noted " St. Cloud" - which is a western suburb of Paris.

This piece comes ready to frame with a custom 3" acid-free archival mat and acid-free foamcore backing.
