1965, Saint-Jean : Etudes n° 8 par Jacques Mennessons

1965, Saint-Jean : Etudes n° 8
Fusain sur Ingres - Collection particulière

In the few sketches on paper devoted to the mystic disciple, Mennessons chose charcoal on Ingres paper. In a strongly-contrasted composition, the deep blacks melt into violet-blacks, in rectangular shapes with frayed out edges, streaked by flashes of luminous white surging from the paper background. The force and impetus of John’s testimony can almost be perceived.
