Artist's gallery

"Some people say that my painting is lunar and naive", admitted Anselme Boix-Vives in 1963. "I think that when I was a shepherd, I used to sleep outside and look at the moon. I imagined that it was populated with people resembling my painting. When we know that the work of Boix-Vives, author of a utopian plan of world organization Peace through work - New on the planet, concludes in 1969, a few months before Neil Armstrong actually walked on the moon, why not retain this qualifier "lunar" to characterize his own space conquest in the universe of forms?
