An elegant and substantial, mid-century figurative oil by this member of the second generation of the School of Paris of whom Georges Braque said, "Philippe Auge is one of the most accomplished artists of our time and a colorist of rare quality." Auge exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards. He is listed in all relevant art reference works including Benezit's Dictionnaire des Peintres. We are pleased to offer this large signature work from the artist's middle period.
