It would appear Picasso may have inspired Jean Negulesco’s single line life drawings … or perhaps it was the other way round, after all Picasso is famed for saying that ‘…great artists steal.’
It would seem these paintings and drawings were done in his spare time as he has a star on the hollywood walk of fame for his work as a film director and screen writer.
The nude that was sold on 1st Dibs above made my heart sing. If you are interested in purchasing some of Negulesco’s work Orange furniture are selling the red & pink serigraph print below. See a post on this furniture heaven here.
