Carte blanche Xavier Noiret-Thomé.
Xavier Noiret-Thomé’s work consists in a loving and perpetual appropriation of the history of art and of painting in particular. All the artists presented in this selection of films belong to Noiret-Thomé’s idols. As far as he is concerned, they embody the idea of the artist as a lonely and heroic figure.
