PAINTER AND ENGRAVER (1941 - 2005)

Antoine de Margerie.
Pastels, watercolours, paintings or engravings, the language is the same:

Constructed forms, a simple colour range and no more than one colour range per canvas! Like many others I started by being figurative, but I was attracted to the boundaries of fields and the horizon in landscapes; the table rather than what was on it in still lifes, the doors, walls and cupboards in interiors: no doubt that is how my work evolved towards abstraction. Then each exploration led to the next.
