Colorism

From 1974 to 2005 Constant continues his colorist experiments, now on the two-dimensional surfaces of: paintings, collages, watercolors, gouaches, drawings and prints. His architectonic compositions can still be identified in his work up until the late eighties.

He sees his important predecessors as the colorists Titian, Delacroix and Cézanne. He describes the colorism of Cézanne in a collection.32 This late period can be divided into five phases during the last of which Constant further develops the colorism of Cézanne. He then creates space and depth, without drawing a single line, purely with color.
