Original color lithograph of an attractive young woman with a dog in a harbor by the important and increasingly popular French contemporary artist JEAN-PIERRE CASSIGNEUL (1935-). The work measures 18" by 25 3/4" inside the mat and 35" by 26 1/2" in tasteful quality framing (reverse label of Samuel Stein Fine Arts, 620 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago). The artist signed in pencil at lower right and numbered at left edition 79 of 150. Cassigneul was born in Paris before the war and was exhibiting solo there by age 17. Between 1955 and 1960 he worked in the studio of Roger Chapelain-Midy. From that point on, his career continued a steady ascent, his popularity increasing to the point where today his oils regularly bring over $100,000 at auction, one having reached nearly $900,000 in 2013. In 1954 Cassigneul met dealer Kiyoshi Tamenaga, who played a large part in the promotion of the artist's work in Japan, where he remains hugely popular, after countless exhibitions of his work in large Japanese cities. By 1968, gallerist Wally Findlay was handling his works in America. It is said of Cassigneul that his work is reminiscent of Les Nabis---artists such as Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard, and clearly, there is a lot of Kees Van Dongen in Cassigneul's sexy, sophisticated young women. The print is in excellent condition. E
