Panorama - L'Utopie Sociale

TypeOriginal, Acrylique, crayon
Size51 x 68 cm
CommentsFrançois Schuiten: “Huge buildings ovoid alveolar evoke different social utopias that have passed into history. Light, concentrated primarily in the lower part, highlighted the work activity, the hum of a beehive, the feverish excitement of a swarm. But higher up in the edification, the more light gets colder, the activity is solitary and silent. Certainly one of the dimensions of utopia most difficult to embody. This image, against all odds, was one of the most used to illustrate the Pavilion Utopias.”
