L’Entrepreneur d’illuminations
Le feu d’artifice chinois du douanier Salmon

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: L’Idée de littérature à l’épreuve des arts populaires (1870-1945)
  • Author: Rialland (Ivanne)
  • Abstract: This novel proliferates with naïve artists and popular figures who together construct an aesthetic discourse opposed to the unanimism of Jules Romains, transformed into a rapacious railway worker. Against the spontaneity and doctrinal character of the unianimist, Salmon proposes a lyrical machinery anchored in a French tradition far-removed from the academies. In this interwar period, L’Entrepreneur d’illuminations emerges as an aesthetic melting pot and a novelistic variant of the idiotic paintings celebrated by Rimbaud.
