PIERRE GY 1923-2011, 50 YEARS OF PAINTING
The museums of Langres pay tribute to Pierre Gy with an unprecedented exhibition bringing together, for the first time, two hundred paintings and drawings by the artist.
Having lived and worked between the south of Haute-Marne (Prauthoy) and Aube, this little-known painter developed his work from figuration to abstraction, from the 1950s to the 1990s, in the wake of the great currents of modern art.
Pierre Gy was a fine connoisseur of old masters, artists from the School of Paris like Nicolas de Staël or Vieira da Silva and Chinese painters like Zao Wou-Ki. His artistic journey testifies to this heritage. He also reveals a strong relationship with nature, landscapes and the elements, which were the source of his work.
To transcribe into words his emotions at the same time as his pictorial ambition, he liked to recall: "I look at what I dream of seeing". This exhibition invites you to follow the sensitive journey of this painter during fifty years of creation.
