LACK, GOLD UND FARBE – Die Frauen des Frédéric Léglise

From December 7th, 2020 to February 6th, 2021 the Viennese Private Art Club ART 9TEEN will be showing portraits of women by the Parisian painter under the title “Lack, Gold und Farbe – Die Frauen des Frédéric Léglise”, which are in constant dialogue with self-portraits by the master of contemporary figurative art Art.

In 2012 Léglise made his debut in Vienna in the group exhibition “GOLD” in the Lower Belvedere, following on from this, ART 9TEEN wants to put a highlight of the winter season with this exhibition and dive deeper into the work of the French painter and present it in Vienna. Mostly it is portraits of Asian women that Léglise represents. His image composition is very clear, at times amazingly simple. It is no coincidence that Léglise is reminiscent of Gustav Klimt and the Vienna Secession. This becomes particularly clear in the way in which Léglise uses gold as well as oil and lacquer. Even the topic of crossing borders and bringing nudity out of the private moment into the public is reminiscent of Klimt. Most of his models move naturally in everyday contemporary situations. To the viewer, it seems as if women are enjoying this moment. The painter encounters the model and the situation of their enjoyment in the adoration of a French knight. This is expressed in the delicacy of the presentation and its color scheme courting femininity.

In February 2016 the French “Beaux Art Magazin” celebrates the work of Frédéric Léglise on the cover as “The great return of the figurative”.

Léglise, who also teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Grenoble, is one of the leading French artists with exhibitions in Paris, Basel, Seoul, Athens and Tehran, among others.

“Lack, Gold und Farbe – Die Frauen des Frédéric Léglise” will be on view from December 9th, 2020 to February 6th, 2021.
