“A mental experience where the white filled the entire space, in a manner different from that of Manzoni or Ryman,” recalls Olivier Kaeppelin, a great admirer of the artist, who will give a conference in his presence on the 14th of may at 19: 30. It is after this period of pure white to Claude Bellegarde launches out to body lost, from 1961 to 1963, in the color and the verticality of the gesture, giving his work a particular vibration.
The rhythm of the jazz music he loves, between exaltation and frenzy, the artist painted twenty-five paintings and gouaches on paper (7,000 to 32,000 €), shown for the first time in their entirety. A beautiful tribute to this artist of 91 years, a figure of the avant-garde, several of whose works belong to the collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Museum of modern art of the City of Paris.
