Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michel Gigon (born 1929 in Caen, Calvados) is a French painter, stained-glass window designer. He began his artistic career in 1953. Michel Gigon made many exhibitions in France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Poland. Many of its paintings are in private collections in France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain. "It has been said and repeated a painter is a witness, who witnesses in colour, and this makes his evidence attractive. Even when he seems to cheat, whether it be through dandysme, calculation or contempt of his contemporaries, he is still telling the truth in a certain way: it is not him, it is his epoque, that is not frank. But Gigon does not cheat. He is too spiritual to do that. Destiny has placed him in a time of transition where the atomic centrifuge has scattered the last rays of light of impressionism, while little by little, the uncertain lines of a new world are being drawn, still in a state of vapour or project. At this crossroad, Gigon gives witness of continuity of the spirit, and the light in his work comes as if through the folds of a certain which has been half opened onto another world.show more
