Notes: 

A graduate of the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris, Flechemuller works in a purely classic, painterly mode, creating archetypal images of animals and human figures that radiate boundless character and an often wacky impertinence. With an aesthetic reminiscent of mid-century popular culture and advertising, Flechemuller’s works teem with nostalgia, absurdity, and purity of spirit, illuminating life’s little pleasures and oddities with a wry sense of humor and wit. A shear joy of painting and respect for his subject matter are always evident in his work.
