Lucie-Marie Pouyfourcat (Toulouse 1903 – Saint-Orens-de-Gameville 2002)
Portrait in black dress
Oil on canvas
73 x 60,5 cm
Signed and dated lower right: Pouyfourcat 1939
Presented in 31th exhibition of Société des Artistes Méridionaux in Toulouse, May 19th 1940, n°161
Lucie-Marie Pouyfourcat is known for having been a member of the Société des Artistes Méridionaux, where she regularly exhibited portraits and landscapes from 1932.
The work we present today draws its effect from the strong contrast between the black figure placed on a white background, all in a very thick material. The pose in profile, without complacency of the model gives great strength to the image.
