Felix LABISSE

Born in 1905 in Marchiennes (France) and died in 1982 in Neuilly sur Seine (France). Félix Labisse was a French painter linked to the Surrealist movement, to which he never fully adhered. He began his career as a painter in 1922 in Ostend under the protection of James Ensor. Felix Labisse's early works are very much influenced by Ensor and rooted in Flemish expressionism. In 1968, he completed his masterpiece 'Le Bain Turquoise', which sums up the entire production of the following years: the Blue Women. These were the years of his pictorial maturity. Metamorphosis is at the heart of his work, taking it to the frontiers of fantasy, mythology and eroticism. His naked women, with their lacifs bodies, huge eyes and smooth forms are now part of the history of painting.
