This painting is a representation in Jean-François Laurent's characteristic geometric style of the Pont des Arts, as seen from the Louvre in Paris.

The metal architecture, all curves and intersecting lines, lends itself particularly well to the artist's painting. The work also focuses on perspective, in the arches, the railing as well as in the lampposts that punctuate the bridge up to the door of the Institut de France. She invites the viewer to walk across the bridge, as if attracted by the canvas. The geometric vision reinforces the impression of complexity of this structure, a work of architecture as well as art. The shapes thus cut out on the canvas allow the artist to play with contrasts, opposing shadows and lights to give dynamism to the canvas. The colour palette goes from greys to warm browns on the whole canvas. Thus the sky uses the same chromatic range as the monuments, creating a link between the material and the immaterial, between life and art. More than a simple representation of an urban landscape, this painting is a reminder of the importance of art and artists in a sometimes difficult or monotonous daily life.

Jean-François Laurent - JFL was born in Lille in 1975. He has been mainly been painting in his own with oil on canvas frames since 1997. His work is inspired by lights, colours and transparencies. It is influenced by the works of Lyonel Feininger, Robert Delaunay and Constantin Brancusi.

In his paintings, Jean-François Laurent seeks to transform perspectives and light to show the invisible, the interdependence of things, beings and objects. The lines intersect, cut, deform to give a very structured composition, yet perfectly free and detached from the rules. The subject, ranging from figurative to total abstraction, remains as perceptible to the observer who can project themselves into these familiar forms, while leaving the possibility to see what they wants to see, to feel what they like. Light and shadows are everywhere in the canvas. From every point of view, the interpretation of the work can be different.

His touch is precise, he works with little material and with a reduced range of colours. In this way, he seeks to make the canvas vibrate, to make it feel alive and sensitive to its environment. JFL seeks that each work is to be rediscovered at every moment, that the one who observes it is caught by the composition, by the colours, by the movement and that each time he lets himself be touched as if it were the first time.
