A stylized and rare original art deco fantasy laden rendering of a nude Amazonian Warrior by noted illustrator and muralist Andre Durceneau. Almost platinum or golden age comic book-like in it’s execution. Nicely framed and matted in a period gesso frame.
Andre Durenceau was born in Auray, France on June 1, 1904, and later became a resident of Los Angeles in the early 1930s, where he painted a mural of Samson and Delilah in the Leimert Theater and worked in the art department of Technicolor Studios.
Primarily known as a painter and muralist, Andre Durenceau’s artistic oeuvre has spanned many years and many illustrations, and the work that survives is highly prized. Many consider him to be one of the greatest muralists of all time.
