The young painter chose his models for portraits over the years in pace with the people he met in his life: “big boy” Camille Renault, an art enthusiast, restaurateur and patron of the arts, Jacques Villon his mentor, Charlie Chaplin, actress Martine Carol, Jean Cocteau or his wife Luce, his “Luz” or light of his life.

It’s not you who looks at the painting, it’s the painting that winks back at you
