Jacques Muron draws Palm trees, in the Pyrénées

La Maison Oblique, 1998

I have often told you about this discrete gallery, Documents 15, on rue de l’Echaudé just behind Eglise Saint Germain des Prés. Until the end of July, it is showing drawings and prints by Jacques Muron, a rare artist born in 1950, who works in the Pyrénées, south of Toulouse. Each work is original in its theme and incredibly well produced. The artist was a laureate of Prix de Rome and studied at Villa Medicis. He is a member of the Société française des peintres graveurs like Erik Desmazières.

Discipline, 1999, burin et pointe sèche sur Chine appliqué

In each piece, one finds a weird detail that excites the imagination and I particularly liked the distorted hairbrush called “Discipline”. We all have a special relationship to this object which we use daily to tame our hair. There, the artist tames the hairbrush with fantastic talent.

His most sold and famous burin is “Mask” a very cleverly knit etching. All prints sell for under 500€ and drawings range from 1 200€ to 2 200€.
