GALERIE DUTKO Bonaparte
After the success of his exhibitions in Paris and New York in 1950, Jean-Michel Coulon spent his life creating, drawing, painting, letting no one enter his studio. In 2014, at his death, his daughter discovered an exceptional body of work, structured, accomplished, intact of more than 800 paintings and collages never exhibited.
After a long silence, the Galerie Dutko has chosen to unveil some fifty works, oils on canvas and collages from the 40s to the 2000s. The exhibition reveals his strength of abstraction, his round then geometric style, the density of the material with the use of a knife to mold paint thickness, his brushwork on paper and wood, and his collages of the last years.
