After moving to Paris with his parents in 1913, it was the early Renaissance painters Jean Fouquet and Paolo Ucello who fascinated the young Estève during visits to the Louvre in the 1920s. His desire to become an artist was ignited. Largely self-taught, he became acquainted with the art of Cézanne, whom he admired, and visited the Atelier Colarossi in order to form himself artistically. Finally, from the 1930s onwards, he developed his own style, based on post-Cubist forms, which he composes in a poetically colourful way in the paintings of figures, still lifes and interiors. These become increasingly abstract during the 1950s, showing closely interlocking forms with rich, bold colours. Alongside Jean-Paul Riopelle and Pierre Soulages, Estève is an important representative of gestural-sensitive Tachism in France, also known as lyrical abstraction.
