Pierre Soulages

Pierre Soulages (born 24 December 1919) is a French painter, engraver, and sculptor. In 2014 François Hollande described him as "the world's greatest living artist."

Soulages is also known as "the painter of black," owing to his interest in the colour "both as a colour and a non-colour. When light is reflected on black, it transforms and transmutes it. It opens a mental field all its own." He sees light as a work material; striations of the black surface of his paintings enable him to reflect light, allowing the black to come out of darkness and into brightness, thus becoming a luminous colour.

Soulages paintings are named by their size and date of production. 17 December 1966 from 1966, in the collection of the Honolulu Museum of Art demonstrates the artist's boldly brushed black on white canvases. The Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, the National Gallery of Art (Washington D.C.), the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), and the Tate Gallery (London) are among the public collections holding work by Pierre Moulages.

Pierre Soulages(1919年12月24日出生)是法国画家,雕刻家和雕塑家。 2014年,弗朗索瓦·奥朗德将他描述为“世界上最伟大的生活艺术家”。 Soulages也被称为“黑色画家”,因为他对颜色的兴趣“既有颜色也有非颜色。当光线反射在黑色上时,它会转变并转化它。它打开了一个心灵领域拥有。”他认为光是一种工作材料;他的绘画黑色表面的条纹使他能够反射光线,让黑色从黑暗中走出来,变成亮度,从而成为一种发光的颜色。 Soulages画作以其大小和制作日期命名。 1966年12月17日,从1966年开始,在檀香山艺术博物馆的收藏中展示了艺术家在白色画布上大胆地刷黑色。蓬皮杜艺术中心(巴黎),檀香山艺术博物馆,蒙特利尔美术博物馆,巴黎现代艺术博物馆,现代艺术博物馆(纽约),现代艺术博物馆,里约热内卢Janeiro,国家美术馆(华盛顿特区),Solomon R.
