The art of Mathieu, main protagonist of French Tachism, has various sources of inspiration. His gestural painting was influenced by Hans Hartung and Wols, as well as by East Asian calligraphy. To the artist it's about the immediate, emotionally guided and intuitive painting act. This work offered here shows how he integratres a speedy painting process and thus coincidence as stylistic means. [FS]

Fascinating work in watercolor and Inida ink, collaged with red velvet paper. Broad margin with tiny isolated brownish spots. With mounting remains all the way round on verso, showing on recto only in lower edge (not visible in frame and mount).
The condition report was compiled in daylight and to the best of knowledge.
