Catalogue Note

‘One cannot escape from Valtat’s warm and nurturing seductions, from the eloquence of his sinuous lines and the radiance of his vibrant colours that transform nature into a perpetually dazzling and sonorous celebration.’ (Translated from George Besson,  ‘Préface’ in Valtat et ses Amis, Albert André, Charles Camoin, Henri Manguin, Jean Puy (exhibition catalogue), Musée de Beaux-Arts, Besançon, 1964, p. 7
