Description of piece:
Markus Billard's impressively sized original painting measures 56" in height x 43-1/2" width x 2-1/2" depth in its substantial, ornately carved custom frame with linen matting. (The person standing beside the painting in the second image is over 6-foot tall.)

This painting is from Billard's thematic collection of paintings L'Ecriture du Corps, in which he expressively explores the human body. Billard's work expresses itself as a poetic vision, the result of a multiplicity of converging perspectives. His depictions are the result and the unforeseen conclusion of movements spontaneously created by the alternating affects of gesture, shape, and color.

Artist bio:
Markus Billard, grandson of master painter Robert Libeski, a member of the Vienna Sezession, first held a paintbrush in his grandfather's atelier in Vienna. His artistic genealogy goes back even further as Libeski's own father and grandfather were well-known painters of the 19th century.

Schooled in Lausanne, Switzerland as well as in the United States and Quebec, Billard had his first solo exhibition at the distinguished 'Galerie d'arts Contemporains' in Montreal before he had even earned his degree; and less than one year later his work was exhibited in a second solo exhibition at the opening of 'Le Portal Artour' gallery in Quebec City.

Billard's celebrated painting career continued with international solo exhibitions including those of a body of work titled L'Ecriture du Corps (Schrift des Koerpers / The Writing of Bodies) in 1999. This painting is part of Billard's impressive L'Ecriture du Corps.
