Michel Albert

New England Gallery

This young French painter has already learned the lessons of the School of Paris, especially from de Stael. Thick slices and wedges of color are stacked on top of each other to form a simple image. Color and paint are the order of the day, but the most interesting paint­ings are those in which these two elements serve an end instead of being exploited for their own sake. Square Table and Snowscape best typify the direction this decided talent might take.
