Lot Essay

Please note that this work is sold with a certificate of authenticity and will be included in the forthcoming Zenderoudi catalogue raisonné

'In the early 1970s, Paris was a tranquil and untroubled haven opened to various trends of body art. During those years, Zenderoudi painted an ensemble of works, most of which offer a meticulous exploration of the body, whether female or male, through a wide variety of pictorial forms. In the acrylic painting titled TCH+TCH+TCHH executed in 1972, the artist breaks into the fictional to transform in his own way the literary tradition of social emblems. This type of symbolism, usually employed to veil taboo subjects, suggests and sometimes reveals the truth of the bodies, just as Jean Giono successfully described their palpitations.

The present work by Zenderoudi belongs to this thematic of the allegory and exhilaration of the body and celebrates the female bosom. Rodolphe Stadler was the director of the eponymous Parisian gallery that represented internationally renowned avant-garde artists in the 1970s. Zenderoudi maintained a longstanding collaboration and friendship with Stadler, who bought the present masterpiece directly from the artist to include it in his own personal collection. Stadler placed this painting in a very private area of his premises in Saint-Tropez (South-East of France), where it was hanging until recently'.
