Note. In the 1950s until the end of his life, because of his heart problems, he worked mainly with sheet metal, wrought iron, autogenously welded, beaten, repoussé, polychrome welded sheet metal and iron, copper. All materials are good for him to express himself, the voids have for him the same importance as the full ones, by the shadowy caverns they hide and the accent they give to the relief”. Professor Lepine asked Jean Lambert Rucki to decorate his villa “Ombre Blanche” located in Beauvallon in the South of France. The artist decorated this quiet residence, on either side of the entrance, with two bucolic motifs of a very beautiful simplicity. The work presented is close to these frescoes. This work will be included in the catalogue raisonné being prepared. Estimate 30,000 – 40,000 euro. Maison R&C. 03/25/21
