Daniel Authouart, a French painter in his fifties, is particularly fond of the fifties to seventies United States. He is keen on paiting atmospheres which are close to those seen through the camera's objective : bars where the light filters through the shutters and where nice girls and private detectives can be seen; garages full of old Cadillacs and Harleys. Thanks to his "drive-in", he manages to express his passion for American movies.
Daniel Authouart also loves symbols. In most of his paintings, you can find Coca Cola bottles or ads for the beverage, Mickey Mouse images, private detectives looking like Humphrey Bogart, references to films, singers or rock groups.
But one must say that Daniel Authouart is not only that even if it is what I prefer.
