Splendid painting by Henri Pfeiffer, “Pas de deux”, 1931 Henri Pfeiffer is a German artist who pursued artistic studies at the University of Bonn and later at the Bauhaus under the guidance of Paul Klee and Kandinsky. His creations are characterized by a sense of movement, dynamism, and color, closely tied to European avant-gardes. His dancing figures with angular bodies, distinct from the colorful backgrounds, convey a captivating and enchanting atmosphere. Henri Pfeiffer extensively explored pictorial techniques and different ways of developing paintings. As a result, his works were created using experimental techniques that the artist developed, such as this watercolor made with non-miscible pigments. The outcome is extremely original, emphasizing the brilliance of colors and the sensation of movement. Arrested by the Gestapo during the dissolution of the Bauhaus in 1933, he never returned to painting and became an ophthalmologist, a recognized specialist in color perception. He dedicated a book to this subject in 1956, titled 'L’Harmonie des Couleurs' (The Harmony of Colors), and taught chromatology in Paris (where he settled after the war) at the School of Applied Arts from 1960. This watercolor is titled 'Pas de Deux,' monogrammed, and dated at the bottom right. Dimensions : 42 x 29 cm 16.53 x 11.41 inches
