Robert Combas

A French artist born in Lyon in 1957, he has exhibited in France and New York City.
This painting was created in 2000 and is titled,   
La femme lumière de l’homme

From a statement on his website, his art is meant to...

 “provoke, that is, to trigger a reaction in the spectator 
only to ‘invite’ him, beckoning him in 
and whispering in his ear ‘come over and talk to me, 
I want to tell you about the stupidity, violence, beauty,  
love, hatred, seriousness and fun, the logic 
and senselessness that pervade our day-to-day lives’ ”.
