About

The sources of inspiration of the French painter Ludovic Huet are very varied: music, poetry, mythology, stained glass art, etc. For Céleste, acrylic on board, Ludovic was inspired by Céleste Mogador, Countess of Chabrillan, dancer of the 19th century born in Paris. Celeste is also the color of his eyes and the sky seen through the open window that let a dove come back. The dove of peace, a recurrent element of this artist's painting, as it was for Picasso and many others. Celeste, acrylic on panel. Dimension: 40 cm x 30 cm x 4 cm This painting is the pair of "Anouchka" 1stdibs reference number: LU74432717263 about the artist: I was born in the Loiret, in France. My training as a painter and a poet was carried out on the banks of the Loire, in the woods and the flatlands that surround it… but more prosaically in the school of applied arts! My paintings illustrate an intimate and personal mysticism. With themes strongly evocative and recurring: Love, Nature, Humanity, Arts… Poetry and music are an integral part of my work and also the inspiration that leads to it. This ensues a protean production: mainly painting, but also etching, drawing, publishing, poetry and even less common art like retable… and who knows what’s to come. The artistic medium imposes itself in accordance with the moment and the subject. I do give a great importance to the hand-craft part of art. I like to work following the ancient, lengthy rites that can be at times tedious. I see my work rising with the time the same way the bread dough does. The multiplied small gestures of the craftsman, the time taken and above all the love (love of materials, skills and tools) make up the plenitude of my artistic gesture. Even tough if this is difficult.  As it can not be any  other way in a world where we are left with less  and less time. Time to create, time to think, time to be.
