    Description

    LOUIS ICART (French, 1888-1950)
    Salome, c. 1920
    Oil on canvas
    28 x 23 in.
    Signed lower left
    This early masterpiece is consider to be one of Louis Icart's most important works from his "red" period when his palette featured rich, fiery blends of reds, yellows, and gold tonalities, and his paint treatment was highly influenced by the Impressionist masters Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The artist's wife Fanny posed as the model for Salome, and this prized piece was housed in Charles Martignette's private collection for over two decades.

    From the Estate of Charles Martignette.
