Product description
Corneille (1922-2010) Lithograph 'Le Divan Bleu' - 1979 The work is signed, the work is an EA edition The work is H. 50 x W. 65 cm framed H. 79 x W. 95 cm. Corneille stood at the cradle of free painting in Europe. In 1948 he also met Constant and with others founded the Dutch Experimental Group and later Cobra. Cobra was founded by Belgians Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret, Dane Asger Jorn and Dutchmen Karel Appel, Constant and Corneille. The name Cobra refers to the international element of this art movement. The abbreviation stands for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, the capitals of the countries where most of the Cobra artists came from. In 1948, he settled in Paris. For Corneille, the Cobra era was primarily about experimentation. Art had to be naive and above all spontaneous. The academic and intellectual approach was rejected by the Cobra artists. They drew inspiration mainly from children's drawings, primitive folk art and "outsider art," art made by mentally ill artists. This "naive" art form was seen by art critics as a reaction to the horrors and arbitrariness of World War II.
