Selected works

A painting by Martin Barré enters the collections of the musée Fabre

Martin Barré, 60-T-26 © D.R.

Martin Barré shows here a great mastery of the composition, founded on the limits of the painting within a skilful unsteadiness. This work, although interacting with some "French touch"of abstraction (reminding Tal Coat), opens new perspectives in the early 60s for painting. The palette is full of joyness and contrasts sharply with the grey or brown monochrome paintings in the mood at that time, letting the white of the preparation and the vivacity of the blues, reds and yellows explode.

It is the very first acquisition of the Fondation d'entreprises pour le musée Fabre, done wit hthe exceptional help of the Société Générale bank.
