Brun violet et rouge is a gouache on paper of great dimensions, produced in 1959, when Serge Poliakoff (1900-1969) is under contract with the visionary and demanding Heinz Berggruen (1914-2007) who opened a gallery in Paris in international fame, by exhibiting Klee or Matisse's cut-outs. Exhibitions devoted to the work of Serge Poliakoff are multiplying, in Europe and in the United States.
The vertical red stripe, almost in the center, gives an axis of symmetry to the composition, thus divided into two unequal parts. Around this band, alternating red and purple shapes are articulated which admirably punctuate the composition, leaving the four angles free. This geometry is very particular to Serge Poliakoff: it is both stability - let us remember that geometric shapes were particularly appreciated by the ancient Greeks, because they were considered perfect, devoid of the contingency of biological beings, for example - and subtlety: each shape is particular, irregular. This irregularity is positive because it avoids boredom and dogmatism, which is true for art as well as for life.
The colors are transformed by being superimposed, in a play of transparencies which gives lightness. The pictorial material, all in lightness, recalls the glazing technique of the Old Masters of the Renaissance and the Dutch Golden Age: delicacy of the layers of paint which are superimposed to create completely unique chromatic effects and light reflection .
