Jacques Nestlé – Abstract Art of the Fifties
§7.3. – 17.5. 2016
Jacques Nestlé is the painter of colors and forms, in the same artistic vein as some of his contemporaries such as Kandinsky, Mondrian or Miró. However, unlike them, he uses black, although a vibrant, fluctuating and shimmering black, in a remarkable way, combining and adding structure to his work. On the other hand, his nudes, sometimes stylized to the extreme, in which feminine forms melt into outlines and colored contours, recall the nude curves of Matisse, or the anatomical compositions distinctive of the cubist nudes of Picasso.
