Jean-François Cournot :
"He paints paintings of unheard-of power that represent people, you, me, everyone, in common, banal, usual situations. But these people are not arranged, embellished, rigged. They are nature, true, absolutely true, terribly true. With their faults, their imperfections, their shortcomings, their manners . But also with the small, almost imperceptible detail that gives them a crunchy, irresistible charm. Frédéric is a capital witness of today's society, an obvious sociologist, a precious ethnologist..."
