T’ang Haywen

The last travel...
Poland 1990

Poland was T’ang’s final journey. He died one year later in Paris. The paintings he realized there were the last traces he left behind him. They are now part of Leszek Kanczugowski’s collection.

Just like the artist, this collection illustrates his profound duality, straddling two cultures (Chinese and French), two worlds (East and West), two religions (Taoism and Catholicism) that interact to find a balance.

In the 1980s, T’ang inched closer to the Christian religion, regularly attending the Fontgombault Abbey, and finally decided to convert.

T’ANG HAYWEN was writting about his works: “My painting is neither figurative nor abstract and does not belong to the neo-figurative school. Such definitions seem to me to be too limiting. I am looking for an art without constraint in which I evolve freely. ”

Art’s experts reviews on T’ang Haywen: “You painted as we breathe, or rather, painting was your most natural way of breathing, day and night and your brush sang the world you had visited and the people you had met.”

Friendship and passion for the art

T’ANG HAYWEN AND LESZEK KANCZUGOWSKI

I first met T’ang Haywen in 1988, in Paris where I was at the head of Foyer Jean Paul II and where I had just opened an art gallery with the friendly help of Dominique Ponnau, a friend of T’ang’s and then director of L’École du Louvre.

I met François T’ang for the first time in the art salon of Sylvie Goldschmidt – and from this first contact was born an exceptional relationship in the image of this great artist.
I was immediately attracted to this charismatic, cultured but humble artist and his work, a synthesis of Eastern tradition and Western aesthetic.
