huguette arthur bertrand - comarave peinture 1961

The artwork Comarave by artist Huguette Arthur Bertrand represents a transition in the artist’s work. There are straight lines typical of the 1950s, but the choice of a warm palette and the appearance of movement also announce the work of the 1960s. The more gestural black brush gradually replaces the ordered lines.
