Simon Hantaï, Étude, huile sur toile 1969, 273,2 x 236,5 cm

Simon Hantaï

Simon Hantaï, whose pioneering work was a major inspiration for Arnal and the artists of the Supports/Surfaces group, crumpled the canvas and saturated it with colour, leaving free rein to chance in the resulting composition. However, unlike Arnal, Hantaï then smoothed out and re-stretched the canvas.
