Maurice Estève - Bank Street, 1967 - Lithograph on Arches paper, professionally framed, museum-glass
Maurice Estève (1904 Culan - 2001 Culan) was a largely self-taught French painter.
Born in the small town Culan in the Val de Loire, he moved to Paris with his parents in 1913, where he began his education as an artist. He attended the free studio of the Académie Colarossi in 1924 and developed a style inspired by the French Cubist painters Georges Braque and Fernand Léger.
He held his first solo exibition in 1930 at the Galery Yvangot in Paris. In the 1940's Estève slowly evolved is style into complete abstraction with tight-knit interlocking shapes in rich, bold colors.
Maurice Estève took part in the Venice Biennale in 1954. His works have established themselves in many well-known museums and collections around the world, like MoMa, San Fransico Museum of Modern Art, Kimbell Art Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago.
