Simon Hantaï. The Centenary of Exhibition - Album & DVD

Simon Hantaï (born in Hungary on 7 December 1922 and died in Paris on 12 September 2008) was involved in several artistic movements (surrealist, gestural, etc.) and claimed various influences (Cézanne, Matisse, Pollock) until he developed "folding as a method" in the 1960s: folded, crumpled, impregnated with colour, unfolded, stretched, the canvas is nourished by this unique path.
