gerard schneider - peinture de 1958

This artwork from 1958 is characteristic of Gérard Schneider’s gestural and lyrical abstraction. Broad black brushes sweep the canvas in powerful creation. Strata of paint layers here work in depth on color, sculpting it. First a green background – and a full palette is used: yellows, blue brushes, red streaks, carmine and vermilion, two orange stains on the side and finally, white breaths.
