Robert Helman is one of the 20th century's major artists. Based in Montparnasse from 1946, he shared in the adventure of the New School of Paris without allowing himself to be trapped by any pictorial trend.

Painted with bold gestures and a bright palette, his Suns, Genesis, Roots, Germinations, Trees and High Glides have produced a vast personal cosmology.

Robert Helman has thus managed to communicate his vital energy through powerful and lyrical work, by expressing, in harmony with Nature, the intimate link between his inner personnal vision and his artistic achievement.

"Painting the intangible is my concern, it is my spiritual domain." Robert Helman
