An unclassifiable artist of eclectic and protean works, Jean-Pierre Pincemin was doubtless one of the most singular artists of his time. A leading figure of the Supports/Surfaces movement at the beginning of the 1970s, he progressively distanced himself from the other members of the group, refusing all stylistic allegiance and considering the distinction between figurative and non-figurative art to be meaningless and unimportant. He conjugates minimalism and the celebration of beauty in painting better than any other artist from his generation. As demonstrated by this exceptional group of six historical and monumental works which retrace in unique fashion the artist's career and illustrated in later pages of this catalogue, Pincemin indeed stood radically apart from his peers by his transgressive posture as by the unparalleled materials and techniques he used.
