Object description :

"Martin Vives "
Martin VIVES is an artist rooted in his land: his art feeds on the sensuality of Catalonia, its tawny colors, its scents ... For all that, it would be reductive to catalog him "regionalist painter" because he always stressed the universal dimension of his painting: "I do not care about the local tone, only the pictorial quality counts" he liked to remember. This representation of a caf terrasse terrace during the village festival (Latour de France), decorated, lively, cheerful, corresponds to the best of its production: a vivid polychrome, a boldly tawnish bill, an animated scene that suggests the movement , the flonflons, the happiness of living. The only criticism addressed to this accomplished artist would be, in the words of Michel Déon of the French Academy, an "excess of modesty, because finally his work is on the fringe of the greatest (we think of Derain, Marisse, Friesz) and will one day join them ".
