Sofas
In the series of the Canapes, Pedro Uhart enters the field of genre painting, from an intimate point of view. Although his humor takes the form of a gentle playfulnness, it is inwardly charged with realist satire of the Spanish « picaresco ».
The canape - whose colors, red, pink or cobalt, indicate the temperature reached by is occupants, - plays the role of Cupid’s seat. It is the place for love’s prologue, crystallization, or epilogue.
These paintings bear the aesthetic mark of popular comic cartoons, but Pedro Uhart stages them skillfully as scenes of theater’s comedy, and his characters, perfectly cast such as in « Le canapé orange », « Le canapé de la rubia», or « Madame Récamier », greatly amuse us with their subtle and colorful perfomances.
