Les Lilas
(Lilacs)

Signed “Cassigneul” (lower left)
Oil on canvas

Jean-Pierre Cassigneul stands among the greatest living French artists of the contemporary age, and his canvases reflect his own unique experiences of his time and place. The present work, entitled Les Lilas, is a testament to his unflinching originality and highly personal style, displaying his unique fusion of French haute couture with traditional portraiture. Richly hued with a vibrant palette, this monumental oil on canvas embodies the appealing sophistication and timeless elegance of Cassigneul's impressive oeuvre.

The work combines two of the artist's most prevailing subjects: the fashionable female and the lush garden. Vibrant colors and striking brushwork lend the piece its contemporary feel, while his sleepy-eyed subject is a classic trope from art history. Together, they form a distinctive style that is uniquely Cassigneul. His work is reminiscent of Les Nabis, the early 20th century French Post-Impressionist painters, in its avant-garde color palette and flat spatial compositions. Expressionist painter Kees van Dongen was another important influence on the young Cassigneul, whose portraits resemble van Dongen’s elongated, sharply contoured female forms.

Born in Paris in 1935, Cassigneul studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, holding his first one-man exhibition at the young age of 17. Since that first show, 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.​​
