The art of Mathieu, main protagonist of French Tachism, has various sources of inspiration. His gestural painting was influenced by Hans Hartung and Wols, as well as by East Asian calligraphy. To the artist it's about the immediate, emotionally guided and intuitive painting act. This work offered here shows how he integratres a speedy painting process and thus coincidence as stylistic means. [FS]
