Catalogue Note

“The form and colour harmonies that appear on my canvas influence the direction in which the work subsequently develops. Just as the ‘truth’ of certain characters shapes the novel’s development contrast to the writer’s wishes and pre-established plan, I obey the demands of movement first expressed with desire and lucidity before gradually becoming their prisoner” (Maurice Estève cited in: Exh. Cat., Paris, Germain Viatte, Catalogue de l'exposition Maurice Estève, 2015, p. 7).
