Catalogue Note

Jacques Sultana was a French painter of male nudes and sometime fashion illustrator. In the 1970's, he produced a remarkable series of graphite drawings centering on male nudes and employing surrealist or psychedelic motifs. L'Oiseau rare, executed 1975, is one of the best of these.
