For the culture of the taste of the meditation,
In the view of Cathy Dugas, journalist writer.
Henri Deregnaucourt is trying to find eternity in the deepth of the eyes. A gleam in the eye, time flies so fast. A ray of light shows us sadness or joy. His works reveal great sensibility. When you look at the portraits, you're profondly moved H.D. has adopted their eyes. The artist casts a glance over human nature. If the words can lie, the eyes can't. In the eyes of a child, in these of a tired adult, H.D. shows us with his portraits the human nature. Is everyday life dull ? H.D. finds consolation with the eyes of his paintings. He paints with feeling.
In the view of Claude Menard, Pastellist.
Henri Deregnaucourt describes himself as a ''painter of souls''. Tormented, distressed, he paints without making concessions. He is inspired by eyes of the others. His portraits are done in orls in a specific style (he paints with his fingers like a painter in watercolours). He makes the eyes stand out and shows the deepth of the eyes. It exerts a great fascination over you. When you're looking at each portrait, You see humanity with its sufferings but with beauty and light as well. Henri Deregnaucourt's portraits show us sincerity.
