In 2018, many fine paintings by Alfred have been put on the market, and the owners have kindly allowed the Association to include photos of them in the Inventory. These is now a total of some 130 known pencil or ink works, treating a wide range of subjects. Some were later used as the basis for oil paintings which we have on record. Not all the works were signed, but can be identified as authentic by their distinctive style. The 2018 Bulletin of the Association's activities has been published, and dsitributed at the A.G.M.
The Association would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many owners of the artist's paintings, who have sent in photographs of them over the past few years.
The inventory is confidential and not directly accessible without permission from the owners of the paintings. The inventory of the complete works of the painter is a long-term project, as it is estimated that he must have completed more than a thousand at the very least, of which approximately 600 have been recorded. To this end we ask anyone who may know of a Swieykowski painting which is unknown to the Association to contact the Secretary using the contacts section in the site menu. We can also give advice on unsigned paintings.
The Art Historian Bernard Pataux has produced a treatise defining the work of Alfred Swieykowski. Please contact the Secretary if you wish to consult it.
Members may obtain a copy of the University mémoire on the works of the painter, studied by Madame Catherine Bouffaré at the Sorbonne.
Notre association voudrait saisir l'occasion ici de remercier les nombreux propriétaires de tableaux et dessins de l'artiste qui nous ont envoyé leurs photos ces dernières années.
Il en résulte que l'inventaire a augmenté de façon spectaculaire, et que des dizaines d'oeuvres vinrent s'ajouter par an.
Ainsi, notre connaissance analytique du style du peintre a considérablement progressé, ce qui nous permet de donner des informations plus précises aux propriétaires qui nous contactent à propos de leurs tableaux. Nous vous engageons donc à continuer de nous aider à établir un inventaire grâce à l'envoi de vos photos dont les droits demeurent strictement confidentiels.
