IN MEMORY OF WHAT I CANNOT SAY: THE ART OF GUY DE MONTLAUR

In Memory of What I Cannot Say: The Art of Guy de Montlaur examines the life and work of a French fine-art painter who fought Nazis on several battlegrounds, surviving hand-to-hand combat as a member of the French army at the onset of World War II then the perils of Sword Beach with the Free French Commandos on June 6, 1944. Guy de Montlaur, who suffered multiple wounds in combat and carried shrapnel in his face for the rest of his life, channeled his wartime experiences into art, creating vivid abstract paintings until his death at age 58 in 1977.
