In addition to painting, François Baron-Renouard devoted himself to the applied arts—mosaics, stained glass, tapestry—and through salons and international biennales undertook a stunning profusion of activity in conjunction with his numerous responsibilities in service to fellow artists. His multiple journeys, from Brittany to Japan, inspire informalist works suffused by the spirit of the new School of Paris. His paintings are poetic landscapes that are internal, labyrinthine, and cosmic all at once. Luminous and musical, this colourist’s works exalt the spiritual richness and plenitude of a man and an artist whose language springs from a natural humanism.
