Catalogue Note

"I always liked black, even in my drawings as a child. I preferred trees during winter, the season of wet tree trunks. It has always been the basis of my palette. It is the most intense absence of colour, the most violent, that awards an intense and violent presence to colours, even to white: just as a tree makes the sky blue." Pierre Soulages, January 1963
