Testimonials

" I was really happy to meet you at your opening and I did enjoy your drawings. I wish you to keep on cheerfully (your path is already signposted) and to live intense creation moments".  Christine Sefolosha, 2018

"Contemporary art is large : artists are getting chaotic and then it is difficult to identify an authentic artwork lost in the artmarket place today...Some artists resist  the official sytem and have only one ambition : go through their own intuition. Anne Lemaître catches us with her wild determination to go through her own desire : her recent serie of landscapes (oil paintings & gouaches) rejoices us because it is a component of both classical landscape tradition and art contemporary". Gérard Garouste, 2018

 
"Beautiful and sincere artwork, creativity can't fake". Philippe Brenot, 2018

"I look at theses faces where yours is finding itself and maybe gets away from it. Indians : an inner tribe where each member keeps audience's distance through worried severity. You probably know Henri Michaux two essays dealing about drawings made by children or insane people.... I love these writings and I sometimes think about them at looking at your work : none for their subjects but for their tone." Christian Bobin, Author, 2017

"Art criticism is based on two points : the artist's meeting and the artwork's meeting. Sometimes you can be surprised by some routes and striking personalities. It was the case in meeting Anne Lemaître, a very demanding artist. Each Indian drawing is an enigma : it reveals a very singular poetry where anthropology is coping with a violently and supernatural onirism. Her paintings are full of dream (she is a tremendous artist focused on details). Cat women, mischievous monsters, singular piètas, precious landscapes....You will see all this in Anne Lemaître's artwork. And even more because : "Dream is another life" (S.Freud)." Yanitza Djuric, Art critic, 2017

"Anne Lemaître's marvellous and virtuosic drawings drive us in a space of energy, sensuality, and dreams. She lets us move into the future- in a world of beauty and science-fiction. You just have to hang on, so her creations will take you there … " Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr, Art collector, 2016

"I looked your creations very carefully and did really enjoy its very honest and strange side; it is an uncompromising work, which is very rare in contemporary art today." Davor Vrankic, Artist, 2016

"I enjoyed your creative, dreamy and cheerful works." Jean-Michel Ribes, Theater Director, 2016

"You mailed me about 50 pictures of your works since 2010 and I have always been amazed and  impressed. What you do is talented. Strange too. I sincerely  wish you to continue on this path." Michel Houellebecq, Author, 2015

"All your paintings seem to be linked to a same story but at the same time this story disapears when you wish to make it clear. There is a contradiction between the precision of your graphic details and the enigma of the picture. I enjoy your inspiration and most your intuition. Time is on your side." Gérard Garouste, Painter, 2015

"Your drawings are mysterious and tormented. They reveal a real depth. I saw  some shadows and chasms . Vertigos. A space of hallucinations. But, at the same time, something very feminine. Maybe because of the childhood (very present in your work). There is some tenderness in your nightmares." Dominique Bona, Author, 2012

"Your creation is sincerely singular and personal, inspired by  surrealist culture and an inconscious world ." Antoine de Galbert, Art Collector, 2011

"The colorful drawings from your series « Couples » are well done. Each brings its own message. Your graphic abilities are solid. Being inspired by the real life, here is the pure goal of art. The more you will be inspired by our society, the more humans will be touched by your work. I wish you to move on and to produce a lot to put on an exhibition ." Barthélémy Toguo, Artist, 2011
