Louis Cattiaux (Valenciennes, 1904 - Paris, 1953), painter, poet, and hermetic philosopher. Contemporary with the French Vanguards, he attained to create a personal style in which is evident a visionary substrate underlying. But Cattiaux is not only interesting because of his painting, but, above all, for his links with the Hermetic tradition, because at his artistic practice united a strong orientation towards Alchemy and the search for the Absolute. This search flowed into an encounter: The Message Rediscovered, a work composed of more than six thousand sentences or aphorisms that are much more than a study of the Hermetic tradition. He also wrote an essay dedicated to painting: Physics and metaphysics of painting. A text written with the intention of deepening, through the artistic language, in the profound mystery that hides itself beyond art.
