Pierre Soulages
Painting, May 1953 - 195 x 130 cm - Oil on canvas; New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

From his youth, Pierre Soulages was deeply influenced by Romanesque sculpture and architecture-in particular the "live" blackness he first encountered during a visit at the age of 12 to the church of Sainte-Foy de Conques, France, which he identified as the source of his decision to become a painter-as well as the ancient Gallic stone dolmens that punctuated the land around his childhood home in southern France.
