The objective of the round table was to open up a discussion around Simon Hantaï’s work with questions that are specifically from a non-French position. Isabelle Monod-Fontaine, as one of the three curators of the 2013 Centre Pompidou exhibition and François Rouan, as both a friend and a younger painter, offer intimate perspectives on Hantaï’s life and work. The discussions look at key issues in both the production and the reception of Hantaï’s painting. The relationship between method and process is opened up as a key distinction, against the background of American art and painting. Hantaï’s withdrawal from the studio and his uneasy relationship to the art world are also discussed.
