Summary "'While speaking of light, in connection with black, this sounds paradoxical. However, in reality, black is a colour of light. You cannot imagine there to be light without black being there, also,' explains Soulages, one of the most important post-war era French artists. Not only his paintings, but also his glass window works for the abbey in Conques appear as poems of light and space. Using 80 works specially selected from his own oeuvre, Soulages discusses his artistic life and provides insight into the philosophy and aesthetic of his work"--Container.
