Incorporated into the French Army for five years at the beginning of the Second World War, MAX-AGOSTINI was taken prisoner for three years. During the post-war period, he was noted for his excellent portrait and landscaping skills in Châteauroux, where he worked for several years. Later, he moved to Gargilesse in Berry and Provence. Died in January 1997, he still painted his most beautiful paintings a few days before his hospitalization.

"Lavender Fields" or "Poppies," "Bright Campaigns of Spring," "Reflections of River Water," "Still Life" and "Bouquets," have made him the leader of contemporary Impressionism.
