le Moal and Manissier

I Went to the Millau museum today which has a good glove and historic section. I wanted to look at 2 abstract painters advertised – I loved the colour, the light and movement evoked by Manessier , there were several large canvasses and a film, I liked the tone of his voice and the images of a boat travelling down a river/ canal though I couldn’t understand his French , very impressionist with echos of Monet and the Seine near Givermy. Jon read that he was very religious and this was also supported by the sound track

I was less taken by Maol these were very messy, great colours again but less form and some of them took years to finish, the paint was thick and layered. The one that had the most resonance for me was called autumn
