While strong, blue coloured areas dominate the screen from the bottom left, red pushes into the picture from the upper right corner. Light blue and gray fields form transition zones and soften the warm-cold contrast. Yellow areas flash across the center of the picture and accompany the black lines. Almost in the center is a white spot around which everything seems to be moving. The black, dynamic lines visualize the violent movements of the brushwork from top to bottom and from right to left. What colour is laid over which, only at the first glance clearly. This play of ambiguity also in relation to the formlessness of the surfaces is an important element of Informel. Thus, the clear claim to show movement plays an important role in Miottes understanding of art and his entire work.

With a written photo expertise by Dr. med. Dorothea Keeser, President of the Fondation Jean Miotte, New York.
