Jean Bouvier used to say: "To paint without having seen is a great sadness! ». From Paris to Normandy, through Italy, Spain or New York, Jean Bouvier delights his eyes with the landscapes he contemplates. The change of scenery orders his canvases and offers many images which reveal a whole universe under the softness of his veiled tones. In this monograph, all the impressions that have marked the artist resurface, leaving room for an imaginary journey to an elsewhere that the viewer is invited to contemplate. Feeling the need to express these images, Jean Bouvier liked to say that "painting survives only if it fed by vision", thus reviving the incessant need to paint.
