Avant la Course
(Before the Race)

Signed “Cassigneul” (lower right)
Oil on canvas

Brilliant and bold, this oil on canvas by French painter Jean-Pierre Cassigneul presents a vibrant view of the horse races. Rendered with a studied use of complementary colors and modern sophistication, the painting showcases the artist's highly distinctive and fashionable style. One of the most individualistic and popular French living artists, Cassigneul's unique canvases display his distinct fusion of French haute couture with traditional genre painting. Avant la Course exemplifies the modern, stylish appeal of Cassigneul's oeuvre, as he brings this day at the horse races vividly to life.

The subject is unusual for the French painter; more typically he painted his fashionable female subjects in a garden or near the sea. Yet, it still fits within his trope of the stylish lady at leisure, as these two women, in their chic hats and scarves, watch jockeys prepare for the race. With its avant-garde color palette and flat spatial plane, the piece is reminiscent of the 20th-century French Post-Impressionist group known as Les Nabis. Vivid, expressive pops of color dominate the scene, applied with a studied boldness that makes it distinctly modern.

Born in Paris in 1935, Cassigneul held his first one-man exhibition at the young age of 17 and later entered the Academie Charpentier, only to leave after one year to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. By 1959, he was appointed a member of the Salon d'Automne, and ever since his work has been widely exhibited throughout the world, particularly in Western Europe, the United States, and Japan, where he enjoys an especially devoted following.
