IMAGES FOR LICENSING : FRENCH HERITAGE
FRENCH CULTURAL AND DECORATIVE HERITAGE
« Creation » is the result of long work and almost permanent attention, evident in the French cultural and decorative patterns visible in churches, on Parisian ceilings, on building friezes, etc. Nothing is further from the truth than to imagine draftsmen, engravers or painters impulsively producing a stroke of genius. It is always a slow, thought-out, elaborate process. Even before conception, a state of sensory and intellectual awareness already exists. This mixture of floating observation and mental work will generate an idea. « Painting is a mental exercise », said Leonardo da Vinci.
A form of continuous reflection, supported by a strong professional culture.
