Pierre Tal Coat

Paintings and Drawings. 1946-1985 Described as the "new Cézanne" by the Monet dealer René Gimpel, Tal Coat built up a body of work that was crucial for modern painting.

Following the retrospectives devoted to Serge Poliakoff and Serge Vandercam, BAM continues its cycle of exhibitions dedicated to 20th century artists. This spring, the City of Mons will pay tribute to the Breton painter Pierre Tal Coat (1905-1985), with a selection of works focusing on 40 years of creativity, from 1946 to 1985.This journey will transport visitors to the heart of a constantly changing world. Evolution is a striking component of Tal Coat's work. Enjoying a close relationship with nature, the artist drew considerable inspiration from it, moving with ease from figurative to abstract work, with little care for the boundaries laid down by theory. A friend of Giacometti and Nicolas de Staël, Tal Coat also frequently met the poet André du Bouchet, with whom he collaborated. Also presented are examples of his graphical work (drawings, watercolours, books), which were produced in a manner perfectly consistent with his pictorial work. Described as the "new Cézanne" by the Monet dealer René Gimpel, Tal Coat built up a body of work that was crucial for modern painting.
