The exhibition

Painter of a lyrical abstraction having made the narrow choice of a palette of matte black and white, the work of Marfaing (1925-1987) moved away from figuration after his discovery of the works of Soulages and his friend Gérard Schneider, as well as Hartung, in Paris in 1949. The exhibition at the Espace Rebeyrolle shows their common spirit: forty-five paintings, washings and collages are on display, demonstrating his desire to bring out the light of the greatest contrast, that of white on black.
