Large unframed abstract oil or acrylic on canvas, 51" by 35", unframed, signed at lower right and dated there "74", **TOGETHER WITH A PENCIL SIGNED AND NUMBERED LITHOGRAPH PRINT**, both by the well listed French contemporary painter, author, printmaker and photographer, CLAUDE HILAIRE HASTAIRE (1946-). Hastaire, the son of the well known French modern painter Camille Hilaire, is the subject of many monographs, and his works have appeared in over 100 solo and group exhibitions, as well as numerous international art fairs. Much of the information on him online is in French, and a quick google search will reveal images of many of his other works. Hastaire's paintings are frequently offered at auction in France. CONDITION: This example has been handled carelessly by past owners and as a result it now has a number of areas of missing paint. I have only nine images allowed per listing so I cannot show each flaked area; the light green spots on the canvas are where the paint loss has taken place. Feel free to ask for more images. The painting will require some professional attention but the flaws are completely repairable. Once inpainted and cleaned, this will make for a very understated and elegant modern work. The greens/white/gray-black palette is very appealing and modern. THE LITHOGRAPH PRINT is signed in pencil at lower right, and "epreuve d'artiste" and "Jardin d'Hiver" (winter garden) also appear in the margin in pencil. The upper right corner is stubbed/creased, as shown, and a metal frame is available with it, though there is no glass; again, more photos of this available upon request. .
