Elisabeth Ronget French Cubist Jazz Trio Painting Art Deco
French artist Elizabeth Ronget depicting a trio of cubist style jazz musicians signed E. Ronget 1939 on lower right-hand corner. Oil on board, this original period cubist painting reflects the dynamic style and artistic development of modern art during this period. Always a topic of interest for the Art Deco period depicting small jazz bands (horn, guitar and drums) appear with this stylistic energy of the cubist dimensions add so much movement and texture to the image. Nice size with complimenting deco style frame.
Elisabeth Ronget (1893-1972)
From her childhood, she had artistic talent. Encouraged by her parents, she began studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, then went to university in Berlin, where she became involved with the painters of the movement Der Blaue Reiter and joined the Novembergruppe from 1926. The political situation becomes dangerous in Germany and in 1931 Ronget leaves for Paris. There she attended the Académie de la Grande Chaumière while earning her living by decorating restaurants and drawing for projects of fabric and wallpaper. In Paris, she meets Paul Ronget with whom she is getting married. Through this one, she gets to know André Lhote, who introduces her to the color and paintings of Paul Cézanne.
