Douglas Bourgeois (US/Louisiana, b. 1951)

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Douglas Bourgeois (American/Louisiana, b. 1951), "Helen Dreams of Spring", 1986, oil on plywood, signed, dated and titled en verso, verso with a "Galerie Simonne Stern, New Orleans, Louisiana" gallery label, 7-1/2" x 8". Provenance: Private collection, New Orleans, Louisiana; Galerie Simonne Stern, New Orleans, Louisiana. Douglas Bourgeois was born in Saint Amant, Louisiana, and the intense character of Southern landscape and culture is a lingering component in his work. Bourgeois finds inspiration and influence from biographical fantasies, tributes to pop icons, discarded paper media, religious iconography and the mysterious life of objects. As a child, he attended Catholic school and had once intended to become a priest, but rock and roll music gained popularity around the same time, influencing him to alter his career choice. Themes of music and religion play out equally in his work. Bourgeois' early style was influenced by the visionary outsider artists and the raw expressive extravagance of Chicago Imagism. Although he is reluctant to define his art, in 1990, a New Orleans art critic, D. Eric Bokhardt dubbed Bourgeois along with a group of fellow New Orleans artists, such as Jacqueline Bishop and George Febres, as a "Visionary Imagist", whose art deals mostly with social, psychological and emotional issues. Looking at the intimate portrait, "Helen Dreams of Spring", rendered in a Bourgeois' trademark meticulously detailed style, we are reminded of early Renaissance panels and icons. The mundane is transformed into mysterious and mystical; pansies, seen in the background, known to grow in Louisiana during wintertime are a symbol of free thinking, while "Helen" bears an expression of deep thought as she dreams of coming spring and perhaps a personal awakening.

Douglas J. Bourgeois (American/Louisiana, b. 1927)

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Douglas J. Bourgeois (American/Louisiana, b. 1951), "Crucifixion of Narcisse", 1975, oil on canvas, signed and dated "October 17, 1975" lower right, 75 in. x 54 in., framed. Note: Known for his richly symbolic portrayals of celebrities and religious figures, Douglas Bourgeois masterfully depicts the tension between the secular and the divine in this monumental self-portrait. Painted in 1975 while the artist was living in Baton Rouge, Bourgeois spent his days working as a file clerk and his nights and weekends painting tirelessly in order to complete this canvas. The top of the painting proves brighter and more vibrant in color with angels filling the busy background which transforms into a chaotic and carnal scene as it progresses downward, a nod to a wealth of art historical depictions of the Last Judgment. Bourgeois depicts himself as Christ, crucified and complete with stigmata and lance wounds, presiding over the fate of the souls surrounding him. Religious iconography would continue to be a central component of Bourgeois’ work, unsurprising considering that as a teenager he had sincere intentions of becoming a priest. As David S. Rubin writes in the Contemporary Arts Center’s monograph of the artist, “Bourgeois neatly integrated secular elements… with religious references – a pairing that suggests the conflicts he himself was experiencing as he tried to reconcile his Catholic roots with his 1970s pop-culture lifestyle.” Exh. 1977 Artists Biennial, organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art, May 28 – July 3, 1977. Ref.: Bourgeois, Douglas, Dan Cameron, Estill Curtis Pennington, and David S. Rubin. Baby-boom Daydreams: The Art of Douglas Bourgeois. New York: Hudson Hills, 2003. p 4.
