Guy de Rougemont

Back to 80's Archive

A painter, sculptor and member of the Academy of Fine Arts, Guy de Rougement was born in Paris in 1935. His work with colorful, fragmented forms was very popular in France when I first met Franck Bordas in June 1979. They had just begun an important series of lithographs for an exhibition a few months later at the Parisian gallery Le Dessin, run by Claire Burrus. That series marked the true beginning of my apprenticeship. Nothing is more difficult than printing geometric abstraction in lithography, but the results were stunning.
