Second Look: Pierre-Eugène Montézin

The Window, 1943

Pierre-Eugène Montézin (1874-1946) deserves a second look for this painting.  Around age 70, just three years before his death, this painting is out of control fantastic.  The abstraction that is going on in the glass cups, patterned plates and drapery put Pollocks of this time to shame.  Gorgeous, gorgeous painting.

very interesting piece of work. I didn't see that painting before. Is there actually a website that shows more from Pierre-Eugène Montézin ?

I love this one too. I haven't been able to find an official site for his work, just found some pieces through google on mutual art and auction sites, I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I find anything else.
