Denise e André (1942)Black and white photo of an oil painting whose whereabouts are unknown as of today. It features Denise, the painter’s wife, and his son André in 1942. Painted indoors, the sofa is in the centre of the painting, to the left of which there is a vase of flowers on a side table. The young woman is facing us. Sitting at the edge of her seat, she is working on her sewing while the little boy, who is sitting on a pouffe, has his profile turned towards us; he is engrossed in his book. The placement of the composition is highly structured through vertical and horizontal axes, rounded out by the diagonals that intersect in the centre, bestowing immense balance to the composition as a whole. The impression of tranquillity, which is felt not only through the subjects, but also through the gentle luminosity with which it is treated, is counterbalanced by the menacing character of the seamstress’s shadow that is thrown against the wall. The quality of the staging, the lightness and movement of the seamstress like that of the child holding his book, lead us to believe that this painting, of which we only possess a photo, may well be one of René Teil’s masterpieces. The search to find this painting is underway and if by chance there is an internet user out there that knows of its whereabouts, we would be grateful for any information they may have.
