Mathieu : lyrical sparks.

Georges Mathieu, one of the most important French painter, inventor of the Lyrical Abstraction just lost his final battle. In spite of his fame, he never had the success he deserved but he had his revenge upon the others, his revenge upon God as he wished to have. From esoterism to History, his work was freed from all the classical strangleholds but nevertheless deeply rich and intellectual. Born in Boulogne (sur mer) and dead in Boulogne (Billancourt), his royal career had to come to an end as he decided to stop painting few years ago. As a genius he gave new rules to Art. His death will probably be his last work of art because it will bring him back to life...

Painting (Peinture), 1952. Oil on canvas, 78 3/4 x 118 inches (200 x 299.7 cm). Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
