Description
Séraphine DE SENLIS (1864-1942) Blue and white flowers Oil on panel. Signed in the middle right 35 x 26.5 cm. Of very modest origin, Séraphine de Senlis, a self-taught artist close to the modern Primitives, revealed herself in the 1920s and 1930s through a painting turned towards the expression of a spiritual inner world that her mentor Wilhelm Uhde characterized as "ecstatic confessions". She is known for her still lifes and large canvases on the edge of abstraction that take up the themes of a teeming botany. Séraphine fell into a madness that prevented her from completing an intuitive and colourful work that was rediscovered thanks to the opening in 1948 of a room bearing her name at the Musée National d'Art Moderne, whose works were transferred to the Senlis Museum in 1989.
