About the author
Asking the novelist Christophe Pradeau to write about Simone Pheulpin's art made perfect sense as his texts draw on close attention to the landscape and the genius of places while making dialogue amongst the arts—cinema, music, visual arts and architecture—a centrepiece of his work. Also an essayist and literary critic, Pradeau teaches literature at the Sorbonne University. His three novels are published by Verdier, the latest of which, Les Vingt-quatre Portes du jour et de la nuit, came out in 2017. He has also authored a cycle of poems for the Art book Paysages entrebâillés. Sept encres de Chine de Françoise Pacé (2011) and an essay illustrated with photographs by Frédéric Leguetteur, Proust à Illiers-Combray. L’Éclosion du monde (Belin, 2013).
