A FRAMED ABSTRACT PASTEL ON CANVAS, "ETUDE POUR LE COMBAT D`ANIMAUX", BY ANDRE MASSON  
Executed 1929. Signed on canvas verso <i>Andre Masson</i> (French, 1896-1987). Also with an exhibition label giving artist, title and exhibit information, "Nassau County Museum of Art/Twentieth Century Exiles: Artists Fleeing Hitler`s Oppression/Nov. 18, 2001 - Feb. 3, 2002".<br /> <br /> Andre Masson was born in Balagne, France on January 4,1896. He was admitted to the Academie Royale des Beaux-arts et l`Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Brussels, Belgium at the age of eleven, and in his lifetime he was an engraver, sculptor, stage designer and writer, as well as one of the leading figures of Surrealism. Masson was badly wounded in the First World War, and the deep emotional scarring, coupled with his belief in the mysterious unity of the universe, colored his artistic output for the rest of his life.<br /> <br /> In the 1920s he was influenced by both Cubism and Surrealism. From 1934 to 1936 he lived in Spain and in the years between 1941 to 1945 he found refuge from the war in Europe in the United States, the work he did here forming a link between Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism. In 1945 he returned to France for good, and where he concentrated on landscape paintings.
