Louis Cane engages himself after followed studies at the Paris and Nice Fine Arts School in the adventure of the last French vanguard Supports / Surface movment. He involves in but keeps his own way of thinking and the curator of the first movment collective exhibition Claude Viallat refuses to exhibit his canvas. Viallat does that because few days before Cane has written a small text in which he makes some critics about the cohesion movment. But Louis Cane will participate to the second and the third exhibitions. This rebel spirit like a branding will lead all of his career and in 1972 he decides to go back to figurative art making and also sculpting. The living room and the gardens of the Villa Domergue underline fourty Cane sculptures oscillating between burlesque and baroque.
