Geneviève Asse (born in 1923) is a French painter. She uses only one colour for her paintings: blue. The work reproduced on this stamp (issued on 10 November 2017) is a composition of 9 rectangles of oil-painted wallpapers and glued on a white suport, defined as an arrangement of Spaces and Lights (Espaces et Lumières).
For this (four?) round of Sunday Stamps A-Z I am going to pick up the project of showing stamps dedicated to women. You can see here all the Women on Stamps featured on this blog.
Go to Sunday Stamps to enjoy more A-stamps.
J'aimais beaucoup ce timbre ,il évoque le ciel et la mer ........ReplyDelete
Il évoque plein d'idées. Moi, je l'aime aussi. Merci!Delete
Les origines bretonnes de G Asse l'ont inspirésDelete
Stunning stamp. Quite an obsessive trait, to only paint in one color.ReplyDelete
I had a look to her paintings (on the Internet) and they amazed me. They look all the same and very different at the same time.Delete
My first thought on seeing this was that I loved the colours.ReplyDelete
But, now I'm wondering why only blue?
Me too, I wonder that.Delete
It works well on a stamp. Her blue obsession must make it easier when stocking up on paints! I noticed she was born in Vannes, Brittany (and today has a house on the Gulf of Morbihan) which makes me wonder if the light and ever changing colours of the sea influences her.ReplyDelete
I guess so. The sea there is amazing.Delete
She has far more variation in her blue than Yves Klein had!ReplyDelete
There is also a bluestamp dedicated to Yves Klein. They would look perfect together!Delete
Oui Klein et son fameux bleu Klein mais aussi Matisse!ReplyDelete
