Simon Hantaï.

Watercolour on folded canvas.
This splendid watercolour is exposed now on Brafa, Brussels.

In 1960, Hantaï developed his technique of "pliage" (folding): the canvas is folded and scrunched, then doused with colour, and unfolded, leaving apparent blank sections of the canvas interrupted by vibrant splashes of colour.
