Thibaut DE REIMPRE
Thibaut de Reimpré was born in Paris in 1949.
Former student of the Beaux-Arts School in Paris (Studio Yankel, 1968-1971), more than seventy personal exhibitions have been displayed since his first exhibition in 1974.
Primarily working with acrylic on paper, he is defined as a painter of the Lyrical Abstraction movement.
He lives and works in Paris and the Department of the Sarthe.
In 2007 and 2010, two personal exhibitions have been on display at the Galerie des Tuiliers.
“Thibaut de Reimpré’s painting is a painting of love and memory. Memory because it vividly rejects the chronic amnesia some are so proud of. Reimpré remembers Rembrandt, Goya, Dealcroix, Bazille, Van Gogh and Rouault. As he recalls the original shock caused by the American lyrical abstraction artist, Rothko, Kline and later, the impact of Soulages. He also remembers the New Fauvism movement from Germany in the 80’s, leaded by Baselitz. Maybe because of a certain romantic mood where he belongs. Far from weighting him down, the way he soaks up these inspirations make his painting denser, deeping, richer. ” Emmanuel Dayde
