Lot Details

Jean Degottex (born in 1918 - 1988) is a pioneer of the lyrical abstraction movement which was to become a major influence on the New York School. In the 50s Degottex became interested in writing and Zen philosophy, with canvases filled with large, quasi-calligraphic brushstrokes against increasingly neutral backgrounds. This work, which combines discipline and the immediacy of gesture, is a prime example of this style. Degottex works have been shown in major galleries and museum collections around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Maeght Gallery, Paris.
