New York will be the source of endless inspiration, with all that this implies of passion and ambiguity. Authouart is the painter of a society of entertainments where the exuberance, the excitement of the crowds, advertisings, movie stars, form a kaleidoscope of colors. because Authouart is at first a teller of our urban world and leads his critique through painting. he seems to tell us to be a little wary of fascination of appearances.
