Pierre Soulages. Noir – Lumiere

Soulages’ crucial turn to the black colour happened in the 1950s, as he focussed systematically his canon of forms and colours on black. His works originate in an European sphere of redefinition and avantgarde, which is marked by influences from the American abstract expressionism, the informel up to Asian ink paintings. Catalogue on the occasion of the exhibition at the Ludwig Museum Koblenz, 2018/2019.
