Bernard Buffet L'Enfer de Dante

Buffet : "... there's no need for education or explanation in order to approach, to appreciate, and to love paintings. You just need to look - and everyone will find what they're looking for, depending on their sensibility, curiosity and imagination. For me, these damned souls project a tragic solitude, a distress, a painful lucidity that strangely resembles the sterile confusion of life today. They reflect the same dread as The Horror of War, though more powerful, more clairvoyant: a vision of the icy world inevitably produced by egotism, greed and cowardice."
