The Café Noir art exhibition will present New York with a strong dose of extraordinary craftsmanship through the French painter Nicolas Foster Bécourt, a living master whose paintings are beautiful, special, romantic and idealistic. These paintings are human treasures on canvas, which in their elegant, traditional and unpretentious way speak very loudly and have much to say.

A television broadcast documentary has been produced about Nicolas Foster Bécourt: “Le Corps Envisagé.” The documentary was coordinated around a solo exhibition of his paintings and sculptures, this one in particular having been sponsored by the French Ministry of Finance. The documentary includes private interviews, sheds light on Nicolas Foster Bécourt’s influences, and shows the artist at work in his Paris atelier. This documentary will be screened daily during the Café Noir exhibition in New York; an excerpt from the documentary can be viewed online at
