Catalogue Note

The paintings exhibited by Kisling appear to be in bloom, a symphony of live and pure colors. They bring us the pleasure, the joy of living that we so badly need. Kisling's art is unadorned, simplified. The painter knows how to leave out the superfluous, the useless. All in his paintings is clear, sharp, neat, animated by a taste for vivid coloring which he probably owes to his native Poland, together with a marvelous sense of colors. He expresses himself in difficult harmonies, dangerous, but which he knows how to orchestrate with an astonishing sureness.” (Jean Kisling, Kisling 1891-1953, Paris, 1995, vol. III, pp. 30-31, translated from the French)
