Saint John-Perse, témoignages d'artistes

Aix en Provence - Exhibition - From June 22nd to November 10th from Tuesday to Saturday from 2pm till 6pm - Free

Dans une lettre de Chine adressée à sa mère en avril 1917, Saint-John Perse assure se passer de tout, "(excepté [de] la musique et la mer) et en particulier de tout l'art plastique". Il récidive en 1962 dans une lettre à Jean Paulhan : Vous savez que je n'entends rien à la peinture, qui n'a jamais eu pour moi beaucoup d'attrait. Et pourtant son oeuvre a suscité l'enthousiasme de nombreux artistes plasticiens, de son vivant et après sa mort. Ce sont quelques uns de ses "témoignages" qui sont présentés au mois de juin. Livres d'artistes, portraits, toiles, autant d'hommages qui constituent une partie du fonds de la Fondation Saint-John Perse. Bien sûr Georges Braque mais aussi André Marchand, Robert Petit-Lorraine, Antoni Clavé, Claude Garanjoud et bien d'autres artistes qui aujourd'hui continuent d'accompagner son oeuvre.
