Male and Female nudes - 1938/1939
 
 
 
 
The major part of these drawings of nude figures were made in 1938.
 
After having seen this series of nudes, Louis-Ferdinand Céline suggested Eliane Bonabel that she should draw some dancers of the Waker Academy of Dance in Paris during dance lessons given by Lucette Almansor (She became the wife of Celine in 1943), the great ballerina and dance teacher.
 
Thanks to Gen Paul (The last great French Expressionist and friend of L-F Celine), who took dancers as models for his paintings, Celine will discover this place.

Eliane Bonabel has always drawn.

Louis-Ferdinand Celine will turnout to be her first admirer. He was not mistaken when he bought her first drawing. She was only 9 at the time.

Furtheremore she was only 12 when he entrusted her with the mission of illustrating his book :

"Jourrney to the end of the night" and later on in 1959, with the illustrations of another book : "Ballets without music, with no one, without nothing else". By doing this, he was ensuring her a kind of acknowledgement.

But Eliane Bonabel is not only that but : drawings, more intimated paintings, undoubtedly less known from the public but so prestigious indeed. The genuine image uf he true artistic personality.
