(...) I was somewhat surprised, to discover he has not reached the height of his fame in his own country, France (…) he has just as unique and individual of a voice as DALI or PICASSO had in their time. Why? I think perhaps this is a question the film could probe. I'd like to build Yatrides up one of the most meaningful genius painters of the 20th century.In his paintings he shows us the past, the present, the future and beyond into the unknown; much like Stanley KUBRICK tried to do in his film "2001: a space odyssey".

In agreement with SEITA (French government tobacco and mtches monopoly), tobacco is chosen, because of some 5,000 components that constitute it. The combustion of the cigarette to 800 at 870 ° Celsius. At 500 °, the temperature vaporizes many elements including lead. In the body of the cigarette is inserted, a steel tube 440 raised to incandescence by the combustion of tpbacco.. Its glow emits a white light that will cross the vaporized tobacco components. The standard speed of light will have different characteristics. In a "Flint Glass" containing lead, the speed of the colors in the white color spectrum is reduced, each specifically. The speed of the color red is reduced to: 1854 x 10 8 m/s (185.400.000 m / s). The color blue: 1835 x 10 8 m / s (183 500 000 m/s) - Normally the color blue is faster than red. In the case studied, paradoxically, it is slower than the red .. Thus, the constant speed c (299, 722, 458 m / s) is variable, not constant. In addition if the volume of different vapors increasing by dispersing.
The analyzes were made in its two separate cases. In the first case, when the "hearth focus" of the cigarette is supplied with oxygen, its temperature reaches very quickly its maximum and decreases abruptly when deprived of oxygen. In the second case, with steel 440, when it is when deprived of oxygen if needed its glowing temperature resists and withstands a time before to decreases slowly . According to characteristics of the device prepared by YATRIDES, the light is very different rates of its standard speed, when it passes through the vapor substances and elements. Time and Space are concerned. At this point, YATRIDES discovers that a photon est

To oppose personally YATRIDES, Jean-Marc GUTTON Director of ADAGP (Society of Authors In the Graphics and Visual Arts), Mr GUTTON mixing contradictory formulas evasive turns clear texts of DALLOZ Property Code intellectual extending DALLOZ with the Civil Code, which could happen in this case. Thus he concludes that an idea can not be protected, which is well known but puzzling: this does not apply in the context of the work of YATRIDES, including its plate monolith that is not a fantasy idealized, but always has been, since 1951 (when the ADAGP did not exist), a concrete realization its own characteristics in themselves and in relation to other elements associated with it, in his paintings concerned. Plate monolith is found in identical situations with 2001 a space odyssey (1968), perfect geometric shape in the works from 1951 to 1963. The plaque YATRIDES rectangular monolith YATRIDES, Engine argument, and key KUBRICK film is the cult object that determines at the outset of the film, the first link of successive sequences of the film and its conclusion last link joined the first in a loop, indecomposable. This rectangle monolith, today represents in geometry, a particular rectangle created by Georges YATRIDES. It happens to be the only existing prototype, single standard geometric shape, capable of reproducing itself by the mere projection of the diagonal, protected by the INPI, National Institute of Industrial Property.
Our brief analysis of the No. 1 edition of TOC Nadine MICHAUDET Director, has allowed us to better understand this fragmentary text, undocumented, distorted which tends to prejudice.
However, this deliberately futile text seems to confirm the achtevement of a book, more substantial : Nadine MICHAUDET / TOC: "We started in a relationship based on trust. I want this to continue (...) For now you play the game (! ..) The publication of a book about you and showing all of your course. This book, we will do together, on the basis of interviews (...) ". Nadine Michaudet Monday, March 10, 2014. Having obeyed Lyon constituents, supposedly experts, Nadine MICHAUDET is facing the most extraordinary life, lived by a painter who was able to determine his own choices without any restrictions whatsoever.
Following a complaint by one of the injured victims, including Jean BLANC Lawyer which had been stolen the 5th painting of the list of doubtful works (see next paragraph), Thierry ERHMANN forgot to respond to the request made to him twice concerning its information errors. His silence was interpreted as a sign of contempt that determined the intervention of the Police (March 6, 2001), file instructed by the Judge LOISEAU of LYON City then by MARTIN and NORMAND Inspectors SRPJ (Federal Police) under mandate of DCPJ (Management Center Judicial Police). YATRIDES asked to terminate proceedings for concealment of information about harm to (441-1 Penal Code). This highlights the expression of René CHAR "YATRIDES the painter outside the tumult that has mastered the common time" quiet testimony of a undecomposable study done in 1975 in Isle sur la Sorgue; C. GALI reveals it, in his Review "TALK Summer 1975 ".
Concealment practiced by a Professional in Information aggravates the offense and causes more severe judgments than those applied for a burglary the fence is as guilty as the perpetrator of the principal offense. Concealment committed after the principal offense (...) is punishable either as an act of complicity (art. 62 of the Penal Code) or as successive separate offense. This always presupposes the existence of a previous principal act punishable by law. Concealment, continues to have a strong pejorative coefficient attributed by common sense.
Some recent judgments of the SUPREME COURT emphasized that the Jurisprudence concerning concealment, still continues to be very severe, particularly if it determines adverse consequences and other unforeseen situations.
Letter from Master Pierre BLACHE auctioneer, after receipt of letter of Jacques BOUSSAC that obscures the results of auctions of works YATRIDES, when significant, damaging to aggrieved buyers.

With such conditions information, so do not be surprised to see the International Art Market leave our borders to settle abroad "

Note : Master GERMANN in Zurich, as well as other worldwide adjudicators until the 2000s, experienced the same situations coordinated by the principals of the Establishment; constituents who enrich themselves with countless sales of minor decorative works, decided to oppose the work of YATRIDES by any means, including information handling.
Mr. TOUBIANA does not seem to be aware of the significant events that built the cinematographic art. In July 2011 in PARIS when commemorating the cult film KUBRICK: 2001 a Space Odyssey, TOUBIANA exposing his retrospective omits YATRIDES rectangular slab monolithe , multi-axis of the film. This slab appears in his work since the early 50s. Without it , there is no film. This little world around Serge TOUBIANA is playing with nothing, they love this word, nothing.Nothing major worries is to congratulate each other with nothing.
In 1956, Georges YATRIDES sign an exclusive contract with S-E. JOHNSON Director International Galleries, Chicago Ill. Most International Galleries distributed in the USA, included windows store that recalled those of Montmartre PARIS tribute to this place which symbolizes the art at that time. In these windows sstore, paintings of YATRIDES were exhibited. CLARKE entered several of these galleries. He rejects the pyramid of its initial scenario, reminiscent of Egypt and replaces the YATRIDES monolithe. "During the months that followed their meeting in 1964, Kubrick and Clarke conscientiously dissect the latest theories of science during their tours cinemas, art galleries (...)": signed by Piers BIZONI ("2001 THE FUTURE according KUBRICK":1984), Edition Aurum Press limited 25 Bradford Avenue, London WC AT1B3 ; translated in CAHIERS du CINEMA by Olivier Gueret and Charles Jr. Tutum of the original English-language . Piers BIZONI learns that YATRIDES exists, but can not react, his Magazine 168 pages is already printed, 168 pages devoted to the Kubrick film.
Controversy (wikipedia) has long hovered over the authorship of the famous monomlithe justifying and developing the movie 2001: a space odyssey, and key argument of all critical stages, until the last final scene where Bowman hero of the film, dies becomes a fetus carried by the monolith back to earth. The work of the painter George YATRIDES has since 1951 monolithes slabs having the characteristics and the same symbolism as that of 2001. Various publications which analyze this fact including Yatrides et son siècle l'anti Picasso by Alexandre sacha Bourmeyster, famous semioician, university dean Grenoble III and Yatridès Maître du temps d'Arthur Conte, Information Minister and CEO of ORTF first television stations, under the Presidency of Georges Pompidou President of the Fifth French Republic (1969-1974).
YATRIDES never claimed paternity rights, although several conferences organized by the SOCIETYof GRAPHIC ARTISTS have recognized that his monolith had the indisputable attributes of original works on the substance and form, manifested in its contacts with the hominid. This originality is confirmed by the characteristics of the rectangle YATRIDES ; They define it as unique geometric model standard ; geometric shape, able to reproduce itself indefinitely by the projection of one of its elements (National Institute of Industrial Property, INPI filed Discovery 443581 and 512216).
For the prestige of MGM was not tarnished, the work of YATRIDES would appear in the film credits.
