His works are signed with the monogram "pl". Philippe lepatre, who arrived in Paris in 1928, was a student in the sorbonne before taking architectural courses in Berlin.
During the Second World War, he took refuge in the south of the france where he began to paint. Participant in actions in resistance, he obtained French nationality in 1947 and settled in Paris in 1953 in order to devote himself to painting and engraving.His work is in lyrical abstraction and has an intellectualized character, his first personal exhibition (galerie colette allendy, 1956) being supported by his prolegomene text for a philosophy of criticism. His 1968 exhibition at the stadler gallery is also associated with his writings, with the presentation of reality in its entirety - an essay of a hierarchy, principle and function of the art work.
In a position of universality as the "highest principle", he synthesizes his formation as an architect and his abstract pictorial vocation by stating as inconceivable "a wall art other than non-figurative, for it alone naturally integrates with modern architecture: non-figurative art is this language of a new universal tradition, of a new world where the sign becomes reality, and of sign reality. It is to figurative art what algebra is to mathematics". This item is in the category "art, antiques\art of xxe, contemporary\prints, engravings".
