Painter and engraver of the first plan, Suzanne Tourte evolved in Paris in the best artistic and literary world. Andre Maurois, Hervé Bazin, Paul Guth, Armand Lanoux, Louise de Vilmorin, Robert Mallet, Paul Fort cultivated his friendship and sung his praises: "O my joy! The exclamation, for who knows, says she and her painting ... "says one," She sings like her grave, as she paints: in a dream "the other bids.
In the early twentieth century when the fundamental concepts of art are questioned, Suzanne Tourte attended an unrestrained competition between artists who are seeking new ways of expression: audacity of Fauvism, Cubism assertion, birth of abstraction, expressionism and aggressiveness as other ... then the "return to order" in World War II.
At the heart of this turmoil, Suzanne Tourte has created his own universe. His early works are figurative frankly. It then evolved into a period called "windings to" where the contours of his characters is identified by a stroke. But it's the 1950 that his painting reaching full maturity of her art, she gave the best of herself. This very personal work, the more built, is the period called geometrized. A period known as "serene" succeeded him. Whatever the "period", a painting is always demanding in its thoroughness and rich in the beauty of his bill.
