SOUS L'AILE BLEUE 1977 Acrylic on paper mounted on canvas Signed lower right: Alechinsky Signed, titled and dated on the back: Alechinsky / 1977 / 100 x 154 / Under the Blue Wing H. 100 x W. 154 cm Artist's certificate dated October 26, 2021, with notice of inclusion in the Catalogue raisonné under number 1699 Pierre Alechinsky remembers: "My first acrylic painting dates from 1965, I was painting on a sheet of paper in Walasse Ting's studio in New York [...]", excerpt from Lettre Suit, 1992, p. 63. The artist immediately perceived the possibilities that this new medium, which was as fluid as ink, brought to him. To channel the paint that spread freely over the entire surface, he conceived an interior frame, sometimes very discreet, as here. The title participates in the poetics of the work. Under the blue wing, Pierre Alechinsky has given free rein to his imagination.
