Jean Legros

À propos de l'artiste

The work of Jean Legros has always been inhabited by a kind of luminous power which still amazes today as it guides the eye and shines from one painting onto another. This metaphor of light, as hackneyed as it may be, seems the only one liable to convey the intensely radiating color that unfailingly characterizes every one of his paintings.

Born in 1917 in Paris died in 1981 in Malakoff
