Catalogue Note

'Throughout his career, he works to capture on canvas the impressions created by the vibrations of light, air and water, thus uniting the arms of his predecessors while adding a new element: solidity, a balancing of the masses, a sense of construction. In first, Loiseau does not try to seize a fleeting anecdotical moment but rather to define its exterior aspect, to recreate it on canvas in order to profoundly penetrate the viewer's perception of it.' (Didier Imbert, Gustave Loiseau (exhibition catalogue), Didier Imbert Fine Art, Paris, 1985, n.p.)
