“When Gisèle Benoit takes up the pen, when the whole family paints, films and documents the morning mists, the cold of the first snows, the autumn light, the starry nights of the North; when she communicates the mysterious energy emanating from the old rocky crests; when she fixes the gaze of the Animal, she puts things back in the direction of nature.”

The Missionary Art of Monique and Gisèle Benoit

Wildlife art to transmit a new worldview that encourages respect and protection of the natural world.

“Science itself progresses thanks to the artist. Scientists are stopped by the idea of the absurd and scientific heresy, but nothing stops the artist, because it is not embarrassed by science… That’s how an artist gets behind the closed doors of science.” 

Elsa Triolet
Writer
