Very neat packaging with insurance and recommended. Guillaume crowille studied at the school of fine arts in Amsterdam where he met karel call and then began to exhibit in 1946. Co-founder of the cobra movement in 1948, he began to travel in Africa as early as 1949 and became embroiled in the symbolism of these cultures. In 1953 he began engraving at workshop 17 à paris directed by stanley hayter. This technique, supplemented by lithography and screen printing, will be one of its main supports throughout its life.
After a short abstract period, crow returns to figuration from the 1960s. Her work, imprinted with lyricism, features the woman (the symbol of the earth), the bird (the masculine character and the artist himself) the sun and the snake (symbols of the female and male sexes), as well as ubiquitous cats. His very colorful painting declines all the inter-actions between these elements and tells us stories that our imagination pleases to enrich.
Living in betting and internationally recognized, he benefited from numerous exhibitions including a great retrospective of his 50 years of creation of prints. Died in 2010 he is buried next to vincent van gogh on oise.
