Maurice Estève was influenced by Léger and Bonnard, but in later years, the Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist movements captured his attention. His stylized figure, still life, and landscape compositions with strong colors gradually became completely abstract, with tight-knit interlocking shapes in rich, bold colors. His paintings established a new pictorial language: lyrical abstractions with the aim of depicting form and color with an almost poetic attitude.

Provence VII - Roger Mühl - One of Mühl's major sources of creativity throughout his career was light. It was in the south of France that he found the intense, bright sunlight that inspired him most. In this series of original signed lithographs from 1986, the artist depicts the landscapes around his home in Provence. These works were created to accompany texts and poems written by French author Marcel Pagnol.

Avignon Prolongation - Pablo Picasso - It was a confluence of influences that encouraged Picasso to lend his figures more weight and structure around 1906. And they ultimately set him on the path towards Cubism, in which he deconstructed the conventions of perspectival space that had dominated painting since the Renaissance. These innovations would have far-reaching consequences for practically all of modern art, revolutionizing attitudes to the depiction of form in space.

Orangerie des Tuileries - Alberto  Giacometti wanted to depict figures in a way that captures a palpable sense of spatial distance so that viewers might share in the artist's own sense of distance from his model or from the encounter that inspired the work. His figures represented human beings alone in the world, turned in on themselves and failing to communicate despite their overwhelming desire to reach out.

Untitled - Jean Cocteau was a master at representing the languid forms of his subjects in sketches. He often used no more than five or six lines to create a woman's long wavy hair, full lips, or searching eyes. An important exponent of avant-garde art, he had great influence on the work of others, including Picasso.

Les Lithographies de l'Atelier Mourlot - Henri Matisse once said, "The paper cutout allows me to draw in the color instead of drawing the outline and putting the color inside it. I draw straight into the color." The hues he used were so strong that his doctors advised him to wear dark glasses because they could affect his vision. This lithographic poster was printed in six colors for an exhibition of the Atelier Mourlot lithographs at the Seibu Department Store in 1984.
