Speech of Mr Guy Privat,
Vice President of the 'Société d'Encouragement au Progrès'
Chief Executive Officer of Edi-Presse

"You are non-conventional painter, while hardly any of your paintings are commercialised, your name is already quoted by eminent figures who compare your art to that of the greatests.

After growing up in the light of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, after your travels across the globe in order to study their artistic cultures and philosophies, you decided one day to offer your energy and your generosity in kneading the paint. Without any concession, you use the noblest materials, the most thorough techniques, and each of your paintings makes us discover a joy, a feeling, a word, a glance from the deepest of your being, of your heart; without ever revealing the secret of how you master your creative madness.

You are one of these artists that we recognize often by their motor, so much famousness become intrinsically linked to this fashion XXth century born and which consists in sacrifying art to the contengencies of marketing and banality.

To encourage Pierre Cherbit, is to recognize in his works and in him the uncommon qualities of intellectual and artistic rigor without which nothing is great. It is also to sanction the value of the gift of art which allows the humanity to progress.

The 'Société d’encouragement au Progrès' therefore has the pleasure of awarding you a silver medal with the hope of seeing you again."
