$ 37.9$ 151.6

Les Quatre Cents Coups – acrylic on paper. This artwork is based on Francois Truffaut’s classic nouvelle vague film “Les Quatre Cents Coups” (1959) done by Berlin artist Thao Nyguen.

Do you admire Rene played by Patrick Auffay in the film Les Quatre Cents Coups (1959)?

Thao takes you through the nostalgic lane as you see Rene reading Balzac while lying in the bed. This painting immortalises the little boy’s fascination for Balzac’s novels. 

The modern art enlivens the monochrome impact of the film with minor red tints. The red hues signify the pain and suffering the protagonist had gone through during his childhood and adolescence. 

This artwork sells exclusively for The Funky Curator. Limited Edition of 300.
