Painter (creator of vital need), scientist, musician, sportsman and writer, Charles LAPICQUE is first drawing school. Orphan adopted by his uncle, he find adults rudes, inquisitives and talkatives. He loves also being deeply animals. Young engineer in Normandy, he meets the painters SIGNAC, MARQUET and Albert ANDRE which makes him want to become a painter (it's in the Normandy loneliness that his vocation was born). He is fascinated also by the cubists BRAQUE and PICASSO. Galerie Jeanne Bucher quickly exhibited his works having spotted independent living. In 1978, the Georges Pompidou museum organizes an exhibition of his drawings imporante which hold an important place in his work. In the drawings, oils and lithographs, it's the same vivacity, the same security trait spouting the same search for invention, the same transformation of the imagination becomes reality. He also leaves through his approach to his subjects glimpse the future adventure. Throughout his life, his palette and technique will change depending on his travels (Normandy, Britain, Italy, Greece, Spain, Holland ...), making faithfully the impression of a day.

It will certainly have been one of the most influential painters of the School of Paris which were part of great artists such as Altan, Dewasne, Dubuffet, Hartung, Kijno, Lanskoy, Manessier, Pignon, Poliakoff, ... His painting is ardie and reflects the fun painter and vibrating color. His works, figurative mixture of abstract and surrealism let perceive various aspects of the creator:

- Normal cruelty given the artist's character
- A melee sympathy a little sadness
- A wonderful constant humor
- A youth incomparable spirit
- A cultured man, passionate and original
