Claude Viallat, born in 1936 in Nimes, France, is a representative artist of 'Supports/Surfaces', an art movement in the late 1960s in France. At that time they questioned anew the fixed concept or systematic side of painting and its accoutrements, asking, for example, why only canvases, wooden frames, and paint itself... Experimentation led Viallat him to establish the typical way in which he paints a consecutive pattern such as bean shapes, using vivid colours on a variety of fabrics, tents, parasols, curtains, awnings and so on.
