Alfred Georgres REGNER, french painter-engraver

autoportrait d'Alfred Geoges Regner
REGNER begins to demonstrate a rigor at this point in his career from which he will never depart. Witness here, this beautiful self portrait of 1922 which is drawn with authority. The acuteness of the line blends itself with the expression of the materials. The smooth and transparent skin of the face contrasts with the textual quality of the back of an armchair. REGNER also paints still lives and landscapes whose structure is very authoritative, but at the same time, the play of the paintbrush makes the surface vibrate. Looking at the self portrait, we find two fixed points, rigorousness and sensuality, visible on his face, the arch of his eyebrows and the bridge of his sharp nose and then, a sensuous mouth..
