“Je vais au Louvre pour voir des abstraits”.
“I go to the Louvre to see abstracts.” This quip of my father, expressed the fact that he liked to look in a painting the composition, the shapes, the colors and not only the illustration, the anecdote, the history. With two paintings representing the same subject, we do not have the same emotion. It is the “abstract” composition that affects us then.
