Catalogue Note

‘Valtat quenches his thirst for painting through his bouquets of flowers. They punctuate his œuvre to such a great degree that towards the end of his life, flowers became the artist’s only motif, as if any other subject seemed vain in comparison to the free space offered by this “non-subject”.'
(Louis Valtat, Exposition rétrospective (exhibition catalogue), Galerie des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux, 1995, p.121)
