‘Sous le Ciel d’Engadine’.

This original oil on canvas, painted by Dantu in 1930, has a remarkable provenance, having been exhibited at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1931 and again during the 1932 Olympiad in Los Angeles. Its stark beauty is reminiscent of Otto Baumberger’s classic alpine posters, and evokes the serenity of the Engadine above St. Moritz to remarkable effect.

Framed with a swept, white gesso frame with yellow golf-leaf slip, and unglazed.

Size: 40 x 47 inches (102 x 120 cm)

Provenance: Galerie Denis Ozanne, Paris, and collection of Isabelle & Hervé Poulain.
Exhibited: Paris, Grand Palais, Salon des Artistes Francais, 1931. Games of the Xe Olympiade, Art Exhibition, Los Angeles, 1932.
