Pierre Soulages – Lithographie no.1

Pierre Soulages, Lithographie no.1 is an original Lithograph on Arches paper made in 1957.  It is signed and dedicated “A Fernand Mourlot.” Aside from the edition of 60.  Printed by Mourlot, Paris.  Published by Berggruen, Paris. Riviere 1.

Pierre Soulages is a French painter, engraver and sculptor associated with Tachisme. He is known as “the master of black” because of his interest in the colour, “…both a colour and a non-colour. When light is reflected on black, it transforms and transmutes it. It opens up a mental field all of its own”. He sees light as a matter to work with; striations of the black surface of his paintings enable him to make the light reflect, allowing the black to come out from darkness and into brightness, thereby becoming a luminous colour.
