Memory of the Flamboyance of P-H.W.

Pierre-Henry WILTHIEN, my husband, was born in Venaco on September 6, 1941, and died in Paris on October 25, 2016.   A Corsican, a mathematician and a professor at university, he was very involved in the fight to reduce inequalities, both in his volunteer work and in his research in mathematics.   I never got bored with him, throughout our thirty-seven years of life together.

“The Human Comedy”

Title borrowed from the French writer Honoré DE BALZAC (1799-1850) who gave it to his entire opus in 1845, most likely as an homage to “The Divine Comedy” by Dante Alighieri. “THE HUMAN COMEDY” by BALZAC gathers together a considerable number of novels, short stories, essays, all of which were written between 1815 and 1848 and depict a French society dominated by money. This painting is about the pretences, the everyday lies, the fake smiles behind the masks.
