An extraordinary artistic and creative impulse followed WWII dark years. As early as 1946, André Minaux, artist and painter, shared it. His friends were Mourlot (master lithographer), Buffet, Lorjou and Rebeyrolle (painters) and Jean Lacouture (author and historian). His exceptional talent was unveiled by happenstance, fateful events and encouraged by great elders such as Picasso, Cocteau, Vlaminck, F.Desnoyer, Fernand Léger, Raoul Dufy, Dunoyer de Segonzac, Clavé and Lorjou. Minaux kept his distance from fashions and schools of thoughts. Art lovers were seduced by his original and powerful art. Minaux exhibited in galleries, museums and in important private collections worldwide. Also a lithographer, engraver and illustrator, he illustrated Hemingway, Cendrars, Ionesco, Agatha Christie, Giono and Marguerite Duras. He drew the famous last portrait of Gide. He found himself involved in a quarrel of figurative artists against abstracts ones, which was going full swing at the time. A painter’s route through those booming years’ artistic events. Narratives illustrated by artwork reproductions, press clippings, movie extracts, interviews and photos. A surprising life in pursuit of art he always questioned.
