Oil on canvas
60x90cm

It is early morning. Suzette, his wife, is still sleeping. On an intense yellow background, the painter has mounted his colors, whites tinged with pinks and greens. These two subtly degraded shades articulate the composition. Follow the green rectangle of the blanket that pops out from under the sheets. Reach beside the pillow in these broken greens, punctuated with oranges. This echo raises your gaze to the woman's face. With mastery, in the line of Bonnard whom he observed a lot, Jean Commère becomes a poet of the intimate with an assertive bias: the geometry of the forms and the structure of the design provide the base for the work of thickly tinted whites, interlocking of rectangular surfaces closed on the left by the oval of the pillow which frames the intimate scene. Jean Commère at 40. He lives in Seine et Marne and is then very successful in Paris, Geneva and New York. He is part of the Young Painting group which questions representation.
