Catalogue Note

Oiselle was the title given during the Middle Ages to a noble girl before her marriage to a damoiseau. Still utilized in modern French with the words Mademoiselle and Demoiselle, Alechinsky explores the depiction of the female subject with a lyrical style that recalls his involvement with the Cobra group and the influence of the Art Brut movement on his work.
