Borrowing iconographic documents - here a detail of Georges de la Tour’s work La Diseuse de bonne aventure - from the History of Art is common in my work. In the first half of the XV11th century, the tradition of tavern paintings called "bambochades" was transformed into a parable by Georges de la Tour and recounted the misfortune of a naive young man who was deceived. The painting, whose initial format was a harmonic rectangle, was for some unknown reason cut off on the side, where the bohemian stole the young man’s purse. Working in an atypical rectangular format and all in height therefore takes on a particular meaning for me here when it comes to the composition of my painting. I like to enter into conversation with the major works of painting and write about them or about the painter by mixing my own painter’s story. I am deeply attached to these references.

Lucile Travert

39 fans

Lauris en Luberon (84), France

57 works

For more than 35 years, including the years of training (Fine Arts in Lyon, Decorative Arts Villa Arson Nice, Doctorate Arts Plastiques Sorbonne Paris) it is to painting that Lucile Travert has dedicated her life and work.

She acquired the skills of the profession of painting, drawing, engraving at the same time as she enriched her artistic knowledge by exploring the history of art through the prisms of literature, music, philosophy, poetry, architecture, photography, sculpture...

The question of the body, of the figure, is for her the fundamental question. She conducts research inspired by the major works of the great masters of painting such as Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens, Titian but also contemporaries such as Cy Twombly, Bacon, Giacometti, Alechinsky, Garouste, Anselm Kieffer... His daily work continues within the stone walls of his studio, a historic setting in the heart of the courtyard of Château de Lauris, a Luberon village nestled on a rocky spur overlooking the Durance plain in Provence.

For 20 years, Lucile Travert has regularly presented her work to an informed public at exhibitions in both emblematic and prestigious places (Abbey, Chapel, Art Centre, Galleries). She also likes to meet new eyes and make her painting accessible to everyone.
