The cloud, ca. 1947  Oil on canvas, 41 x 33 cm

Painter, poet and art critic, Roger Brielle was a friend of Max Jacob and Paul Elouard.  It is André Breton who invites him to participate in the International Surrealist exhibition of 1947 at the Galerie Maeght (with Marcel Duchamp et al). Our painting dates from this period.  Roger Brielle subsequently exhibited with the surrealist group in Paris, Prague, Brussels and Rio.  Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge has a sketch by the artist in the permanent collection.

boris_carousel_study

Study  for “Le Jeudi des Enfants d’Ivry”, 1937

Oil on orginal canvas. Strecher replaced. Signed and dated lower right.

55 x 46 cm

Born in Paris of Russian Jewish emigrants, he came to prominence in the mid 1930s as one of the young French exponents of Socialist Realism. He is often described as an ‘engaged’ artist, but prefered to see himself as an ‘adherent’, reflecting the experience of the ordinary people among whom he lived.

The Carousel is a detail study for a large painting that shows children playing, surrounded by factories, in a makeshift playground in the working class suburb of Ivry, on their day off from school (Jeudi = Thursday). The final work is now in the town hall of Ivry.

For further information on the final painting please see:
