1967, The comet

Encre de Chine + gouache sur papier | Collection particulière

This work is part of a series of small gouaches on the cosmic theme of a journey into space, soon becoming more precisely the journey to the moon. The comet shoots across the sky, leaving behind a luminous trail: the bright yellow of the gouache. Against the black background of a nocturnal sky, the impulse of the shapes which move to the right seem to go beyond the frame in the flash of blues and reds to which secondary colours: orange, mauve and pale green are added.
