Nature morte aux tulipes et compotier de fruits, 1924
Nature morte avec bol de fruits, fleurs et oignons, 1919
I have finished my week-long tribute to the undeservedly neglected art of Suzanne Valadon but found two more images in my collection which I couldn’t resist sharing. These are excellent still lifes and the second painting could almost be mistaken for Braque.

L’avenir dévoilé, 1912

Erik and Suzanne

Posted in Music, Painting with tags , on September 25, 2015 by Dylan Thomas Hayden


One of Suzanne Valadon’s first oil paintings, the charmingly naive portrait of Erik Satie commemorates a brief, intense love affair between the two. In return Satie composed the song “Bonjour, Biqui, Bonjour!” and adorned the autograph score with a cartoon portrait of her. It is unlikely that Valadon ever heard the song or saw the manuscript, which was found in Satie’s effects at his death. The affair lasted six months, though he continued to send her love letters for some thirty years and is not known to have had another love. Valadon’s self-portrait below dates from the same époque.

In her youth Suzanne Valadon posed for several iconic paintings by Renoir including this beautiful portrait of the twenty-one-year-old muse.
