Girl with Umbrella, 1911
GIRL WITH UMBRELLA
Watercolour on paper
7 x 5 cm
The watercolour work by André Evard is painted in strong colours, mainly blue and various shades of red and abstract forms. It shows two stylised silhouettes, a man and a woman in back view, walking in the rain across a meadow towards a mountain range in the background of the painting.
Evard, like his well-known artist colleague August Macke, concentrates in his art on the confrontation of mostly strong colours and simplified forms. In addition, both painters are interested in the ornamental character of a work and allow the depth of space to recede in favour of a two-dimensional effect.
