Dessins, gouaches et aquarelles
Précédé de Queneau et la peinture, par Dominique Charnay
Raymond Queneau, Dominique Charnay

Editions Buchet Chastel presents little-known or hitherto-unpublished works by Queneau in the Artist’s Notebooks collection. Encompassing a series of 150 drawings, gouaches and documents, this volume is an invitation to discover an illustrated treasure reserved until now for a lucky few.

For the first time in print, here is Raymond Queneau going for a stroll with his crayons and paintbrushes. Inventing a game of smoke and mirrors that goes beyond words, Queneau expresses himself with exceptional spontaneity and originality.

In a well-documented study, Dominique Charnay describes the writer’s playful vocation and explores his relationships with several artists of his time, his encounters, friendships and critical choices. Among his distinguished guests: Joan Miro, Jean Dubuffet, André Masson, Gaston Chaissac and Enrico Baj.
