Sun 31.5 x 24 cm. Make an offer / make an offer! Nicolas carrega (born 21 February 1914) is a French painter, engraver, sculptor, tapestry maker, stained glass designer and medallor.He died on 29 January 1993 in viroflay (Yvelines).
Resolutely figurative in the 1950s, located for this in the group of the young painting, his paintings, but also his engravings, then present in a miserabilistic spirit themes related to the harbour life or religious inspiration. It will then gradually move towards a lyrical abstraction not distant from relief stone. Pierre dehaye does not fail to establish a relationship between this shift from carrega to abstraction and his interest in the work of the medal: "like a worn hull on ocean roads, his painter's work has lost, over the years, all together his realism and his high colors.And now, in his fifties, his encounter with the medal offered him the opportunity of a remarkable synthesis which might appear as the crowning of his aesthetic adventure: voluntarily far from figuration, he found himself there, without abandoning his new mode of expression, thus ranking himself among those who, in the medal, introduced a new language."
