Portrait d'André Breton



By (artist) Ferdinand Desnos


"Desnos emphasizes above all the graphics of a thing, which he renders using a rigorous frame to surround areas of flat colour. Enriched by his overflowing imagination, his memories of the landscapes and friends of his youth blossom in works of great feeling." (Paris, Musée national d'art moderne, Le monde des naïfs, 1964, s.p.)
