Lot Essay

Après les mélanges successifs
que nécissitent chaque début
et chaque fin,
mes formes sont superposées et s’unissent
commes les couleurs du spectre.
« Noces chimiques » de la
vision intérieure qui
interceptent, au-delà de la
frontière de la fascination
les émotions fondamentales.
Mes formes gardent
néanmoins l’essentiel de leur
structure et la signification
de leur langage.

Following the successive mixings,
which every beginning needs
and every end,
my shapes overlap and unite
like the spectrum’s colors
“Chemical wedding” of the
internal vision which
intercepts, beyond the
limits of fascination
fundamental emotions.
My shapes keep
nevertheless the essence of their
structure and the meaning
of their language.

- Victor Brauner (published alongside the entry for this work in the 1965 exhibition at Galerie Alexandre Iolas, Paris)
