Calculate shipping cost
Paul Jouve was a French illustrator and sculptor, captivated by animals from a young age, exploring them at the Museum and Parisian zoos. He is the most renowned animal painter of the Art Deco period. In 1931, Paul Jouve set off for Africa from Bordeaux, reaching Dakar and embarking on a journey from Senegal to Sudan, Niger, and Dahomey. It was during this expedition that he created numerous drawings and paintings of Méharistes and Tuaregs. Our drawing originates from this voyage, much like the oil on cardboard depicting a Niger Méhari, also featured in our gallery. These travel drawings allowed the artist to study new animals and represent the peoples he encountered. Upon returning to France, he produced numerous lithographs and compositions based on his travel notes and sketches. Original paintings and drawings by Paul Jouve are rare and highly sought after. The artwork was created on paper using various techniques, both dry, such as pencil, and wet, such as India ink and gouache, showcasing the artist's technical virtuosity. This artwork is sold with a certificate of authenticity delivered by Dominique Suisse. Dimensions : H. 30cm L. 22.5cm Height: 11.811 inches Width: 8.858 inches
