From Paul to Alain
He’s a discreet and always well-dressed gentleman. Immaculate white hair, impeccable beard, sparkling eye, bow tie of circumstance. He is a busy man, his forehead sometimes shadowy, inhabited by an imperious task. This man is Alain Devaux, grandson of Paul Devaux, an immense and insufficiently celebrated artist. The mission he has assigned himself since retiring as an upholsterer-decorator at the Comédie Française: to assemble and inventory his grandfather’s works and wood.
