Claude Bellegarde - Partition chromatique

Born in 1927, Claude Bellegarde has created within the panorama of art in France since the 1950s an important, singular and audacious body of work.

It is Pierre Cabanne who introduced Claude Bellegarde to Guillaume Sébastien. The historian and art critic supported the work of the artist and defended it with passion. A large painting of Bellegarde figured in the exhibition Hommage Pierre Cabanne organized after his disappearance by the Galerie in 2009.
Therefore, because of his affinity with Pierre Cabanne and the work of the painter, it seemed only natural for Guillaume Sébastien to present an exhibition of paintings by Claude Bellegarde,

Jousse Entreprise Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Bellegarde, Farbenlehre as a tribute to Goethe's Theory of Colours. With La Ligne Bleu/The Blue Line a spiritual and carnal celebration, in which the unity of what one feels and which is felt physically hallmarks Bellegarde's White Period. This painting ushered in a new period, Cabine Psycolor, an emotional mirror, created in New York in 1964.

Under the influence of Pierre Restany, the Guggenheim Museum acquired one of these works. The Cabine Psycolor was shown fifty years later, at the Mudam in Luxembourg in the Tomorrow Now exhibition in 2015 and at the Centre Pompidou Metz, in the exhibition Cosa Mentale.
