Gérard Titus-Carmel (French, b. 1942), Nuit Carrée IV / Square Night IV. Oil on canvas, 1984. Image size: 2050x2050 mm (80x80 inches). The title plays off the geometrical description with its metaphorical connotation of "Plain, straightforward" and its numerical/moral connotation of "Four-square" to present us with an emotional night or dream state of transformations and shifting versions of imaginative realities that is anything but plain or straightforward. One of Titus-Carmel's masterpieces. Illustrated in Nuits: vingt-quatre peintures réalisées en 1984 published under the direction of the Musées de Nice for an exhibition at the Galerie des Ponchettes (1985); it is also illustrated in a catalogue published for the same exhibition by the Musée d'Art Moderne de Villeneuve d'Ascq. Price: NFS.
