The Charcoals from 1976: Back to Drawing

In the mid-1970s, after the polychrome seduction of his experience with pastel, Riopelle yielded to the temptation of charcoal’s black-and-white austerity, a discipline that allowed him to establish a distance from the ‘real world’, to make more analytical reading of it, lingering over the structures of space.

The 1976 charcoals are a looser group, and somewhat wild (in the best sense of the world). They also offer the freshness of quick sketches, studies of landscape details, variations on polysemic motifs.
