ARNAUD D' HAUTERIVES (French / 1933-)

Arnaud d’Hauterives was born in Braine (Aisne) in 1933. The art of Hauterives is strongly influenced by that of his teacher and lifelong friend Balthus, with its unsettling atmosphere of suppressed sexuality. Arnaud d'Hauterives studied at the Beaux-Arts, Paris, where he was taught printmaking by Edouard Goerg. He won the Premier Grand Prix de Rome in 1957, and subsequently studied under Balthus, who became a close friend. Arnaud d'Hauterives was awarded the Legion of Honour in 1977, and elected a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1984, serving as its President in 1987, 1991 and 1996, when he was also elected its Secrétaire Perpétuel. In 1986, Arnaud d'Hauterives became curator of Monet’s collection at the Musée Marmottan. His own work is in many state collections in France and elsewhere. Our prints by Arnaud d'Hauterives are lithographs inspired by the poetry of Baudelaire. Their subtle colours required a great deal of technical skill; we have a set of progressive proofs of the print “Madrigal triste” (for sale with the print), revealing that it required no fewer than 14 separate colour passes in various shades of pink, magenta and purple to achieve its rich atmosphere.
