L'Art de Pierre Soulages - Approches - Bruno Duborgel
A new approach to understand and explore the work of Pierre Soulages.
With about twenty illustrations selected by the artist.
This book takes on a new approach to understand and explore the profoundly human and sensitive work of Pierre Soulages. From a series of interviews of the artist, the author gives an overview of the extent of the work of Soulages: from his explorations of black and light to the presentation of exclusive or little-known pieces through his research on material with his stained glasses of Conques or his etchings on copper. Page after page, we are invited to a rare moment of intimacy revealing the poetic depth and sensitivity of the work of Pierre Soulages.
The book is edited along with about twenty illustrations selected by the artist: paintings, etchings, husks of nut etc.

Very young, he was drawn to roman art and prehistory. During a short stay in Paris, he goes to the Louvre museum where he sees exhibitions of Cézanne and Picasso, who are revelations to him. It is only in 1946 that he spends his entire time painting. His canvases where black dominates, are abstract and dark, and are so different from semi-figurative and very colored post-war paintings, that they are immediately noticed. Recently, other pieces of art were created, where rythm, space and light were born from the violent contact between blanc and white on the whole surface of the canvas, it's an entirely new and different pictorial light.
