The portrait of Pope Innocent X, is a major work in the art of D.Boulanger, as a synthesis of the problems of the artist, a double reference to the famous portrait painted by Velasquez and the no less interpretation than in Francis Bacon. D. Boulanger does not fear the great history of painting, quite the contrary, he appropriates it, by his meticulous work on the subject, he confronts it, reinterprets it, deflects it and magnifies it.

“Convinced that painting continues to be a perfectly contemporary technique, he dares to take the risk of breaking with the conformism… of the break, […] Respect for the works of the past intertwines, merges with the need to betray them. ”

“It does not matter to him, he does not care to be frowned upon, or not seen at all, because, he knows, those who do not see him, do not see anything.” Pascal Bonafoux, famous historian, writer, art critic and curator.

“His main obsession : to change the mud of pigments into bright gold.” David Rosenberg, famous art critic, writer and curator.
