The paintings of the percepteur Grandin, singular and unique, are the work of a self-taught genius. With over a hundred pictures we follow the evolution of an artist addressing many issues, particularly that of loneliness. Thus, at the end of his life, his paintings became abstract with amazing color choices. His inspirations came to him from Paris, the theater, literature, celebrities of his time, and from nature.

His sketchbooks are pure wonders, which he drew every night while on vacation (from 1968 to 1992) with color pencils and ballpoint pens, remind us of art brut, painted for his need to capture the moment and hold onto the fleeing life.

His watercolors, light and full of space, we're what he called "my summer memories."
