Portrait of a Dandy – Signed Bradley – 1939

Categories: ,

Description

Portrait of an elegant thirty-something man, seated and turned towards his right with a distracted, thoughtful, perhaps melancholic look in his eyes. This modern art painting, with a clear fauvism influence, was painted in Mougins (France) in June 1939, according to the inscription on the upper edge of the canvas. Mougins is a small town near Cannes, a haven for many artists from around the world. Picasso had his house and studio there, where he died in 1973.

The painting is signed “Bradley, 39”. Our research continues in the hope of definitively identifying this artist and being able to offer more information about him.
