Citius - Altius - Fortius. Which means: Faster - Higher - Stronger.

It is the Dominican priest Henri Didon who is the first to express these words during the opening ceremony of a school sports event in 1881. Pierre de Coubertin, who was present that day, adopted them as the Olympic motto. He believes that they express the aspirations of the Olympic Movement not only in its sporting and technical sense, but also from a moral and educational point of view.

Robert Combas is a French painter, sculptor and illustrator born in 1957 in Lyon. Passionate about music, he participated in the birth of the movement of free figuration in the 1980s. Considered one of the most important French artists of his generation, he has been included for several years in the Artprice ranking of the 500 most popular artists in the world. He now lives and works in the Île de France. When he left high school, he went to study at the School of Fine Arts in Montpellier. It was at this time that he defined his artistic style in opposition to conceptual art, which was predominant on the art scene at the time. The idea of focusing on the concept alone of the work does not seduce the artist, who instead enjoys drawing shapes and contours. Not belonging to any artistic movement, he advocated creative freedom. He began a series of paintings, "Battles", then treated underdeveloped countries with irony and sarcasm, creating the movement of "Arab Pop Art". His style is then very brutal. In 1979, when he was a recent graduate, Bernard Ceysson invited him to present his paintings in Saint-Etienne as part of the exhibition "Après le classicisme".
