    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    LOVE is a silkscreen printed on arches BKF Rives paper in 300 grams. The very small edition, in 20 copies numbered and signed by the artist, makes this work a great opportunity for any collector who loves big names.

    LOVE is strong in symbols. In four letters, the artist immerses us in her vibrant atmosphere of street art and imagines a dynamic interpretation of themes of love, culture and politics. This magnificent work invites us to discover symbols steeped in history such as the Cross of Lorraine, the euro or even popular iconography, the heart crossed by an arrow.

    French painter and plastic artist, Jacques Villeglé is a founding member of the New Realists. With his friend Raymond Hains, Jacques Villeglé appropriates the posters on billboards and walls through the aesthetic effects that the abstract tears give him, while placing his salvage work in a process of political protest. Villeglé reveals "the guerrilla" signs "and keeps" the newspaper of the world of the street.
    Since 1957, Jacques Villeglé's work has been the subject of more than 140 personal exhibitions in Europe and America, and the artist has participated in numerous collective events. His works have been acquired by several European, American and African museums.
    But it was not until the end of the 1970s that Villeglé was able to make a living from his art. It was not until 1998 that the National Museum of Modern Art acquired one of his torn posters, and thus recognized his work.

Jacques Villeglé

France Born in: 1926 Bestsellers Masterpieces

Jacques Villeglé, (Jacques Mahé de la Villegle) was born in Quimper on March 27, 1926. He is a French painter and visual artist and a founding member of the New Realists. He is considered to be the most prominent affichiste.

In the early '50s, Villeglé calls himself an "affichiste" and starts talking about the “guerrilla of signs". He keeps "the journal of the street world ". He collects, keeps track and shows his ripped posters, a "reflection of the dominant culture". He wants to create a popular body of work and provide a trace of the life of an era (its political, social and cultural context).

From December 1949, with artist Raymond Hains, Villeglé collects pieces of posters, and their first poster, "Ach Alma Manétro", is a joint work. The selective work of the artist has been shown in more than 140 personal exhibitions in Europe and America since 1957. In 1958, Villeglé writes a piece about lacerated posters entitled "Collective Realities". It is the prefiguration of the New Realism manifesto. In 1959 he creates Lacéré anonyme. Staring in 1969, he imagines a "socio-political alphabet" as a tribute to Serge Tchakhotine.

In 2007, the artist starts making sculptures using traditional techniques (bronze, glass) as well as industrial techniques (Corten steel, polished stainless steel, cast iron).
