For an entire decade, Serge Lemoyne worked with only three colours, both as a self-imposed challenge and by artistic conviction. But as Marcel Saint-Pierre writes, Lemoyne would “[henceforth] open himself to every possible colour,” even integrating metallic paints, as in Série Rideau (doré, noir, bleu, blanc et rouge) from 1982. His series Théâtre, Rideau, and Super-position, as well as Intersection, Triangle, and Triangulation, all produced that same year, gave rise to rich variations of Tachism and Geometric Abstraction that hover between illusionistic and perspectival space. The multicolour drips flow right down to the painting’s bottom edge, tracing the action of its making, providing proof of its materiality, and confirming its strong presence. A magnificent painting in dramatic tones, Série Rideau (doré, noir, bleu, blanc et rouge) presents a rare opportunity for the seasoned collector to acquire a work by the great Serge Lemoyne.
