In the 1970s, the drawings and paintings of Bernard Moninot result from the combination of elements having different degrees of reality. His works are presented in the Biennale of Paris in 1971 and 1973, at the Museum of Modern Art in Saint-Etienne in 1974, at the Documenta of Kassel in 1977, at the Maeght Foundation in 1979 and at the ARC in 1980. From the 1980s, drawing stands out as the only medium, becoming the subject and the object of his research. His works can be seen in many public collections in France and abroad: Boymans Museum, Rotterdam; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Frac Picardie; MAC / VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine; Menil Foundation, Houston. He exhibited at the National Gallery of Jeu de Paume in Paris in 1997, at the Fruit Market Gallery in Edinburgh in 1998, at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Bombay, Delhi in 2001, at the Andata Gallery in 2003 and at the Baudoin Gallery in 2005.
