Oil on canvas framed. Featuring abstract figure of a nude lady and a man. Signed and attributed to Leopold Survage (French 1879-1968). Signature on the lower left corner. 23.8 x 15 in. (60.5 x 38 cm). Léopold Survage was a Finnish-born French artist who produced dynamic abstractions of city scenes. Fracturing perspectival space into planar segments, he constructed multiple viewpoints within larger compositions. In this way, structures, flowers, trees, curtains, and birds are reorganized into a fragmented yet coherent pictorial space. In what is perhaps his best-known series, Colored Rhythm: Study for the Film (1913), Survage sought to create a sense of animation through the static medium of painting.
