Claude Tousignant

Retrospective on the life’s work of an abstractionist visionary of the first order. The work of Claude Tousignant, from the 1950s to today, encompasses the full range of modernist expression and pushes the boundaries to simplify expression itself in the act of painting. Through a discussion of the exceptional qualities of his profoundly structured oeuvre, this publication outlines the artist’s painstaking quest for the essence of art, not only with painting but also with watercolour, gouache and sculpture, and always with a rigour and an unwavering commitment to an ideal.
