Jean Rustin (1928– 2013) was a French painter , and an important figurative artist .
Beginning in the early 1970s, he created a
bizarre world of human figures, where an existential dead-end is transformed into fright, darkness abhorrence, without much pity nor relief.
In his own words:
“I realize that behind my artistic creation, behind the fascination for the
naked body, there are twenty centuries of painting, primarily religious, twenty centuries of dead Christs, tortured martyrs, gory revolutions, massacres and shattered dreams […] I realize that history and maybe art history are engraved on the body and flesh of men.” (‘Jean Rustin : A corps perdu’ , collected in ) Vanités contemporaines
