“Art is a universal language.” This could be the motto of Martial Raysse, the French master of Pop Art and Nouveau Realism for whom the term “pop” is as apt as it is for Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the US, Sigmar Polke in Germany and David Hockney in Britain. Over 350 works, covering all the fields explored by this visionary artist (painting, sculpture, video, photography and drawing), allow us to follow and appreciate the singular and independent course taken by Raysse, always on the margins of the main artistic trends of the last fifty years.
