In 1971 Jean Miotte stopped painting in oil and began using acrylic paint. This technical detail was attended by important changes to the artist's work. Acrylic paint dries quickly and requires fast and vigorous action; at the same time, it allows the artist to work in larger formats. Jean Miotte appreciated this new freedom and the opportunities of the medium. In his works from the 1970s, he concentrated on movement and rhythm and exercised great restraint in color. His approach to space and emptiness on the canvas changed and he equilibrated rhythmic brushstrokes of color with dominant areas of white paint or raw canvas.
