Max Papart
1911-1994

Max Papart’s paintings and graphics are suffused with the sunny humor and bright colors of the French Riviera, where he was born in 1911-1994. Working in a Cubist style, he depicts circus scenes, flirting couples, soaring birds and similar cheerful subjects with flat, overlapping planes of contrasting colors and textures which suggest many levels of depth. Often he also achieves what has been called a “time window” effect through which the viewer senses the past or future, as in his Indian Summer or Silent Woman.
