Folon spent many hours over many decades at The Columbe d'Or, following in a tradition of artisits and writers gathering there since its inception in 1920. Pablo Picasso, Jacques Prevert, Yves Montand, and James Baldwin have all passed time at the Colombe d'Or, along with Miro, Leger, Braque, Calder, and others.The painting is a simple watercolor rendering of a stylized yellow bird with orange aura in silhouette against a backdrop of white, with swaths of blue at top and blue at top and bottom perhaps to indicate the sky and the sea. The figure of the bird appears in various forms in Folon's work.

Jean Michel Folon

Art Brokerage: Jean Michel-Folon Belgian Artist: b. 1934-2005. Jean-Michel Folon is widely known as a prominent painter and illustrator. He began to study architecture but abandoned it in favor of drawing, which allowed more expressive studies. His drawings have appeared in numerous magazines including Time, Fortune, The New Yorker, and L'Express. In 1969 he had his first one-man show in the United States, followed closely by exhibitions in Tokyo, Venice, Milan, London, Sao Paulo, Geneva, Brussels, and Paris. Folon has illustrated works by Kafka, Lewis Carroll, and Ray Bradbury. Also Folon was commissioned by American Express for their ads. In 1973 he created a series of watercolors titled La Mort d'un Arbre (The Death of a Tree), for which Max Ernst created a lithograph as a preface. Folon has completed a 176-square-foot painting for a subway station in Brussels and a 160-square-foot painting for Waterloo Station in London. Jean Michel-Folon is most comfortable using the engraving and drypoint techniques of printmaking. He was a sweet and gentle man. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
