« I look at the windows of my studio. What I’m searching for is that feminine attribute, that mistiness. It changes. In the morning, the mist is heavier than the sky, but then little by little it all turns around and the sky weighs more than the mist. There is a breaking point. It’s very long, and it’s what I’m always looking for. And I’ve been looking at those same windows for forty years now. »

The book’s introduction consists of photos by Magali Koenig, taken five years before François Aubrun’s death. These are followed by 220 pages of paintings, as well as remarkable drawings.
The book concludes with a biography and overview of the work by Frédéric Pajak, appreciations by historian Georges Duby, philosopher Henri Maldiney, head curator of French museums Denis Coutagne, as well as by several friends including art historian Nicolas Raboud.
