Of his painting, it was written:
"He was considered a figurative painter of Provence and also of landscapes---a foremost painter of light and atmosphere. He used an impasto technique to establish the outlook suggested by the single color. "
- Patrice Mühl honorary expert"I think that each subject has its own color. The key is to disengage, the most important is its ripening. It is not to live a color with a complementary or opposite, but by layers that give it its inner breathing, it must be sufficient and live itself. An important phenomenon: radiation, it is pretty much in the sensitivity of the artist, who at the time found that will capture ripening. It was at this time that the color acquires a certain expression of pure language. "
- Christine Gleiny, Mühl Editions Fernand Mourlot, 1963, p 27
