Abstract oil on canvas. Signed and attr. Simon Hantai (Hungarian, 1922-2008) on the lower right corner. 15.4 x 19.7 inch (39 x 50 cm). Simon Hantai is a painter generally associated with abstract art. After studying at the Budapest School of Fine Art, he travelled through Italy on foot and moved to France in 1948. André Breton wrote the preface to his first exhibition catalogue in Paris, but in 1955 Hantaï broke with the surrealist group over Breton's refusal to accept any similarity between the surrealist technique of automatic writing and Jackson Pollock's methods of action painting.
