Village Street

UTRILLO, Maurice (1883 - 1955)

[image: Village Street]

Media: oil on board

Size: 53.0 x 76.6 cm

Acquired: 1963; Bequest; Margaret Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2165

Collection: The Davies Sisters Collection

Utrillo was the son of the painter Suzanne Valadon, who introduced him to painting in 1901 as therapy, following the first in a series of alcoholic breakdowns which punctuated his career. Dubbed 'the most bohemian of bohemians', he specialised in Parisian street scenes. This view of around 1917 depicts the suburb of Sannois in the north-west of Paris, an area which the artist painted repeatedly after spending time in a sanatorium there in 1912-13. It was purchased by Margaret Davies in 1960.

Maurice was a close friend of a fellow art genius,
Amedeo Modigliani.
Amgueddfa Cymru might consider an important exhibition?
