This catalogue raisonné is a complete repertory of his painted work, from his first "youthful" paintings (1948-1952) to his last works completed in 1986.

At the end of the 1940s, Marfaing began his adventure with painting. His first attempts were still lifes, landscapes and portraits.

In 1952, the artist took the step of non-figuration, a fundamental step that very quickly led him to abstraction. His oils on canvas are marked by a predominance of black, applied in thick layers. The violence and vivacity of his gestures are revealed. The artist creates contrasts between black and white, light and shadow, full and empty. From 1971 onwards, Marfaing turned to acrylic paint, which led to formal changes at the heart of his painting.

His canvases became more refined and ascetic. This catalogue raisonné retraces the artist's path step by step, revealing the works, writings, friendships and struggles of this leading exponent of abstract art in France.
