Text in French. New edition of the reference monograph, recast with a fully coloured presentation. The unforgettable beauty, the dazzling trajectory between abstraction and figure, the deep, essential relationship with the greatest poets of his time, the tragic end of the man who wrote “I cannot foresee what I will do tomorrow, but for the moment I am at the maximum of the plan, at the confines of the blank canvas”: we will find in this book the trace of this exceptional destiny. But also – and this is undoubtedly its necessity – one will find in it a new reading of the work, illuminated by an inner light. Beyond periods and classifications, the author shows that all motifs, rooftops, flowers, nudes, landscapes, orchestras, are there only to serve renewal: “What is repeated is never the same, but the new is an internal measure, an internal gap. Condition: near fine
