Catalogue Note

‘It seems to me that the water, sky, clouds and trees were aware of the happiness they gave me. I, a young man of seventeen, painted poems to life as one writes, at that age, to the woman one will never know.’
(Maurice de Vlaminck in Maïthé Vallès-Bled, Vlaminck, Critical Catalogue of Fauve Paintings and Ceramics, Paris, 2008, p.20)
