1992 - Television report on "Georges Yatridès, Master of time"

Transcription of the video

Host : "As Christmas approaches, historian Arthur Conte is publishing a biography on Georges Yatridès. Georges Yatridès is a world-famous painter who lives in Grenoble. His paintings break records in auction rooms. A printer from Vaulx-en-Velin was appointed for the work, one of quality, carried out with precision in order to capture all the nuances of Yatridès’s paintings. Cyril Genet."

Cyril Genet : "Georges Yatridès was born in Greece in 1931. His drawing is characterized by the assurance of the lines, the purity of the composition, essential forms and the infallible harmony of colours. This is what immediately struck Arthur Conte when he met Yatridès in his Grenoble studio in 1978. He describes the event as “love at first sight.”

Today, Arthur Conte fulfills the dream of over ten years: publishing a book of his own that presents Yatridès. Yatridès, who works frequently on chemical materials with the Grenoble Nuclear Studies Centre, has spent a month at the photoengraver’s studio and three weeks at Fot, a printer based in Vaulx-en-Velin. Arthur Conte came there in order to oversee the making of the book."

Arthur Conte : « This is truly exceptional. I am in awe. Look at that progression: always from darkest to lightest. And that, basically, is his genius. And here, the straight, clean lines; that’s the absolute in design. You managed to capture it. I didn’t think it was possible to print such a perfect work. My hat off to you, Mr. Martin!"

Cyril Genet : "In 1983, during his first public auction, Georges Yatridès beat an auction record at Christie’s, in London, where he outsold Picasso and Chagall. He is now quite famous in the United States, and this book, that should make him better known in France, is also destined for the American market. It is a luxurious book worth over 800 francs but the price is justified by its quality. It is a beautiful Christmas gift."
