A very large oil on canvas signed by Jean Paul Barray and dated 1964. After graduating from Arts et Métiers in Saint-Étienne, he went on to study architecture at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon, working with the great names in architecture and design: Le Corbusier, Jean Prouvé, Roger Talon and Kim Moltzer. He's a creator, and as a designer we know him best for the Penta armchair, which has all the hallmarks of the 70s: aesthetic dazzle meets technical simplicity, as well as a folding armchair. As a painter, he continued to evolve between the 50s and the end of his life. His work received critical acclaim in the '60s, particularly from Georges Boudaille, following the exhibition in 1964 at the Galerie Greuze of what he described as a revelation: a huge, all-yellow triptych featuring groups of sun-drenched bathers. Our huge painting from the same period also requires an attentive eye to recognize female bodies, and the artist leaves us to imagine everything.
