Description: Albert BRENET
18 gouaches originales pour "Leclerc"
Gouaches originales de l'ouvrage Leclerc de Jean d'Esme, certaines signées Brenet. Formats divers. La plupart des peintures sont annotées en bas de la planche ou au dos. Les planches sont peintes au verso de cartes d'état-major de 1918. Les dessins portent la pagination de l'ouvrage auquel ils sont destinés.
Albert Brenet naît en 1903 au Havre. Il suit l'Ecole des Beaux Arts à Paris, puis embarque pour les Antilles. Il continue ainsi à sillonner les mers du monde sur différents navires réalisant croquis, peintures à l'huile, gouaches des navires, des ports mais aussi de la vie des équipages. En 1936, il obtient le titre convoité de Peintre Officiel de la Marine, ce qui lui permet de bénéficier de certaines facilités pour accomplir des missions dans les ports et les arsenaux, ou pour embarquer sur les bâtiments de la Marine Nationale. Pour les compagnies maritimes, il réalise de nombreuses affiches. Il couvre par ailleurs les lancements des paquebots Normandie en 1935 et France en 1961. En 1959, c'est le titre de Peintre Officiel de l'Armée de Terre qui lui est accordé.
Brenet illustre de nombreux ouvrages et collabore régulièrement avec l'hebdomadaire l'Illustration, pour lequel il réalise de nombreuses œuvres qui sortent parfois du domaine maritime. En 1948, il illustre l'ouvrage de Jean d'Esme dont nous proposons ici les originaux. L'ouvrage retrace la fulgurante carrière du général Leclerc et l'épopée de ses troupes, la deuxième division blindée qui, parties en 1940 d'Afrique Equatoriale Française, ont porté leurs armes jusqu'au cœur de l'Allemagne et contribué à rendre à la patrie sa liberté perdue.
