Jacques Nestlé is a French post-war painter.
He is known as the painter of colors and forms, in the same artistic vein as some of his contemporaries such as Kandinsky, Mondrian or Miró.
His art cultivates a deliberate ambiguity between figuration and abstraction, evolving towards a personal form of lyric abstraction in which the artist unleashes his direct expression, a reflection of his inner emotions.
Moreover, according to Nestlé, « genius is the moment when art emerges in an instant of creation. And then, it belongs to all times, present and future, reflecting the artist struck by an irrepressible desire to paint outside of rationalization ».
