Galerie de la Béraudière – Online exhibition COLORS
Color has taken hold of me; I no longer need to look for it [...]. Color and I are now one."
Color, that radiant energy converted by our retina, is one of the permanent subjects of research for painters. Of course, it cannot be reduced to its physical impact on the eye since it conveys cultural and historical references as well as emotions, symbols or elements of spirituality.
KUPKA, Autour d'un point, 1920-1925, Gouache, watercolor and pencil on paper.
Fauvist and expressionist painters (Alexej von Jawlensky), abstract artists (Frantisek Kupka, Paul Klee, Hans Hartung), and the Surrealists (Max Ernst, Joan Miró, André Masson, Félix Labisse) all, in their own way, revolutionized and liberated the use of color.
