Henri Hecht Maik (France, 1922-1993) oil on canvas painting entitled "La Nuit," depicting a tiger illuminated by moonlight amidst an outcropping of vegetation beside a stream. A fish swims in the water and a bird perches on a nearby branch while a full moon hangs in the night sky at upper left, all rendered in shades of blue apart from the yellow eyes of the animals. Signed "MAIK 73," lower left, and additionally signed "Maik" and numbered "1654" en verso. Titled and inscribed "WFCH" (Wally Findlay Gallery, Chicago) and "#51476" to stretcher. Housed in a painted, rusticated wood frame with beige textile liner, double gilt fillets, and brass name plate. Canvas: 8 3/4" H x 6 1/4" W. Frame: 16 1/2" H x 14 1/4" W. Note: Born in 1922 to illustrator Joseph Hecht, Henri Hecht Maik is known for his primitive, childlike paintings that feature exotic creatures in flowered jungle settings. Exhibited first in Palm Beach in the mid 1960's by Wally Findlay, Maik's work has been exhibited in numerous museums including the Musee de l'Art Moderne in Paris.
