Herman Braun Vega – Central Park

If the words “interpictural”, “interpicturality” were not to be invented (as “intertextual”, “intertextuality” didn’t exist before 1960), the art of Herman Braun-Vega, peruvian painter born in Lima (Peru) in 1933, were here to make them necessary. His spectacular series of paintings starting in the 50s confirms that beauty – the true beauty, legacy of ancient art masters – still exists in today art, and lives through the magic of Braun-Vega paintbrush.

Gérard Schlosser – J’ai faim / Tu la vois l’alouette

Shlosser is a french painter born in 1931.

From the very beginning of his work, he chose figurative art, and quickly became a “parcellar painter”. He shows in his paintings body parts, bare legs, shoulders, chests, hands, that are reflections of the pictures he personaly takes .

“I’m not a realistic painter” he said, but he truly is the painter of the relation between human and reality. His paintings titles confirm this : they tell the the personal story of each character. The title thus becomes the writing part of the painting, mentally extending it, and putting the viewer in front of its own reality.
