Oil on Canvas by Rene Genis, French (b.1922- d.2004)
"Le Plat de Poires" by René Genis , France (b.1922- d.2004). Oil on canvas, signed lower right and inscribed on verso: "Le Plat de Poires" Image 21 1/2"x 32" Genis was a French painter. Known for his translucent use of colors in depicting landscapes and still lifes, Genis’ work undulates between developed forms and areas of flat color. His compositions create a distinctive harmony between the scene depicted and the formal qualities of paint, highlighting its material properties while including carefully observed real-world details. Born on January 26, 1922 in Hue, French Indochina (Vietnam), Genis and his parents moved back to Bordeaux, France while he was still young. He went on to study art at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris under Albert Marquet, where he met fellow artists and began exhibiting his work. Genis’ paintings are mainly found in French collections such as the Museum of Aix-en-Provence, but are also held internationally at the Yamagata Museum in Tokyo. The artist died on February 25, 2004 in Paris, France.
