Strictly speaking, this painting should not have existed in 1928. Jean Fautrier, the major representative of European Informel, turns into his own predecessor here. Only at second glance and with the aid of the title does the painting’s subject become clear, enabling us to see flowers emerging from the blue, yellow and black paint. The flowers threaten all the while to disintegrate into non-form. In their fleeting figuration, the flowers seem to be pointing to the horrors of the decades to come, while also anticipating Art Informel, which would flourish after the Second World War.
