Default Etienne Ret artist and painting?

Hi, I've recently acquired a painting by Etienne Ret. You can see it at http://members.tripod.com/tetworld/etienne.html I apologize for the less than perfect quality of the image there.

It is by Etienne Ret...and painted by him, in Paris...1962

I understand he often painted children and women.

Does anyone have any additional information on this artist?

thanks...

I found the following info on him:

Etienne Ret, French (1900 - 1989)

Born in Bourbonnais, France on Jan. 6, 1900. Ret graduated from the College of Mesnieres and completed military service in 1924. He then began formal art training in Paris in the ateliers of Maurice Denis and Georges Desvallieres, and at Ecole des Beaux Arts and Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. His book of poetry, Blindmans Bluff, was a prize winner in 1929. Ret exhibited in London and Paris before settling in Hollywood in 1934. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Often known for his portrait and genre paintings, Etienne Ret was born in France and studied in Paris in the ateliers of Maurice Denis and Georges Desvallieres, and at Ecole des Beaux Arts and Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. Ret exhibited in London and Paris before settling in Hollywood CA in 1934. He remained active in the United States through the late 1950s and died in Europe in 1996. Born in France, Etienne (Perret) Ret studied art in Paris at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs, under Maurice Denis and G. Desvaileres. He first exhibited his original paintings, etchings and lithographs with the Societe des Independants, in Paris, and throughout France. Ret moved to the United States shortly before the outbreak of World War II and initially settled in San Antonio, Texas. He resided there during the 1940’s and established his reputation as a leading artist. Ret was also a member of the San Antonio Art League and taught painting and printmaking techniques at the San Antonio Museum. Stephanie dates from this period of his career. Around 1950 Etienne Ret moved to Los Angeles where he continued to show his art in major national exhibitions. Ret’s art centered primarily upon figure studies, particularly those of children and women. Today the paintings, lithographs and etchings of Etienne Ret are included in the permanent collections of the State Museum, France, the Encyclopedia Britannica Collection, London, the Witte memorial Museum, San Antonio, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Pasadena Art Institute, San Diego Fine Arts Society and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. ////

Hope this is helpful to yoü:

The painter ROGER ETIENNE was born in 1922 and lived in Paris at some time, later moving to the Hollywood, California area. .... Roger Etienne signed most of his paintings alternately Etienne and Etienne, Paris, and glued French newspaper to many of his works of art.

Thanks for the info. on Roger Etienne. The painting I have looks very similar to the clown painting that was shown on the website you directed me to.
Do you know if this artist is still alive?
Do you also know how I can find out what my painting may be worth?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again

To the woman that has the Etienne painting of a child with big eyes, we have 2 paintings of children in bright primary colors. We obtained them in the early 70's. They are oil on paper. We have seen similar oil on newspaper.

Any information ?

Default etienne, roger

I have been buying Roger and selling him for years. His pieces generally sell for around 100.00 or less. He was very prolific. Hundreds and hundreds of paintings floating around the LA area.

Default Roger Etienne

This is interesting. Thank you. I love Google!
I have one of his little girls from 1966. My aunt gave it to me as a housewarming gift when I got my first apartment (1967 or 68). She had a little boy. which I now have since she died last month. Both with collage of French newspapers. I've been trying to read the signature for months and today "Etienne" finally popped out from the boy painting (thanks to whatever remains in my brain of 4 years of high school French in the 60s). I got on line to try to find out his whole name and here you are!

I hope you are still on site or check in from time to time.
I too have a painting like this one.
I wonder what it is worth. If one want to sell it.
Grandmother had it a long time.
IF he was so talented and well known, why did the other poster say
his art is worth $ 100.00 USD or less?
Would it be different price ranges for painting, paper mache, etc?

I believe I have a painting by this artist too. It is from 1972, bought off the Santa Monica pier where he supposively sold paintings when he came to America. Mine is part of a collage of French newspapers as well.

That work is quite beautiful. Looks like it could possibly be by Roger Etienne, but mainly because he seems to work in so many styles that it can't be ruled out.

Default Roger Etienne

I own 5 of the wide eyed children. They are indeed beautiful and all include newspaper collages: 3 of young boys hswking newspapers and 2 of young girls holding dolls with newspaper dresses.

Roger Etienne was born in 1922 allegedly studied with Pablo Picasso, and was initially titled a "minimalist".

He reportedly lives in California, acted in various TV shows although "he did well with his artwork". His landscapes are beautiful and actually seem to move.

My summation is that art is relevent and priceless if it moves you, no matter its origin. Roger Etienne moves me, so my hobby is finding and purchasing his "wide-eyed" children.

Etienne Ret used the upside-down"heart" w/the date & it is a very nice example of his work-treasure it; far more sophisticated than Roger Etienne
