Portrait of Boris Vian by Lidiya

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

oil on canvas
Great French writer, musician and artist. Jazz was his greatest passion. The New Orleans and Duke Ellington! Lived in the most crazy epoch of the 30s, L’Enfant terrible de la classique francaise. One of the rebels of the last non-conformist generation I adore.
P.S. “The Foam of the Daydreams” (L’Ecume des Jours) is the greatest love story I’ve ever read.

    Oh, I love him! I’ve read a couple of books, but have been unable to find anything since then, in English nor Russian. He seem to be only known in France and very ocassionaly in Russia as well…
    I’ve done an ink sketch on one of his books, but it was long time ago and I don’t remember now what the book was called.(you can take a peek here: ) , maybe you recognise the book, if I’m any good :-) Your painting is very vibrant, I like that!
