Aussi Libre qu'un Oiseau / Free as a Bird by Emile Villa

42,500.00

Louis Emile Villa's "As Free As a Bird" shows a quiet moment of a young woman, sitting languidly in a carved oak armchair and dressed in a pink dress with beautifully detailed gold embroidery, her outstretched arm coaxing a flitting bird to perch on her hand. An open birdcage rests beside her, the remaining birds exploring the space in their freedom - perhaps freer in their movements then the young woman.

French artist Louis Emile Villa (1836-1900) was portraitist painter known for his genre paintings. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, alongside contemporary Frédéric Bazille. Villa exhibited regularly at the Salon from 1861 through 1894.

Dimensions: 37 x 25.5 in.
