"And then, flamboyant and apotheosis, the series of roosters constitutes, at the turn of the seventies, the completion of the work of Paul Beaulieu. All that, seriously and over the years had been explored, was transforms into an explosion of colors and vitality. The rooster is the panache of creative virility. It marks the celebration of the happiness of being and of painting without further formality. "
