….a little more on Marcel Marceau


1621690_10153912292428267_695443947151839148_nThis portrait of Marcel Marceau, using oils on concrete, is by Francine Mayran. She painted it in order to “transmit his courage against the devil, and his humanity which stayed stronger than Nazi barbarism”. It is part of a series, “witnessing these lives – témoigner de ces vies ” where she attempts to transmit the humanity of victims by recalling that behind the numbers of victims of barbarism there were women, men and children all with their own identity and individuality.

Francine’s paintings will be exhibited for the Remembrance of the Holocaust and of other Genocides of the XXth century. The next stop for this exhibition will be in Duisbourg (Germany) and then in the Château des Rohan, Saverne (France) . You can see further examples of her work @ www.fmayran.com
