Art Brokerage: Daniel Authouart French Artist: b. 1943. When Authouart creates a painting, the goal is not simply to decorate a canvas but rather to chronicle his time - our time. Who can argue that the American cultural and economic influences that have had such an effect on Authouart have not dominated the entire world over the last half century. One doesn't have to look too long or too hard to find Mickey Mouse, Elvis Presley or an American dollar bill in one of his pieces, or in the real world for that matter. Given the incredible detail of his work, the fact that all of his paintings are freely drawn by hand without aide of any projections and the painstakingly slow technique of the medium used (oil and acrylic on canvas), Authouart is able to create only a few original works per year. With the resultant rarity of his originals and faced with an ever growing demand, (he is one of the few French artists to sell his work before it is finished), Authouart has published more than 60 limited editions to date. These multiples are distributed world-wide, making his work affordable and accessible to larger numbers of people. Listings wanted.
