« Dear Pierre Scholla, Yes, suffer that I repeat to you all the joy I had to know you and all the esteem I have for you and for your work. You embody the qualities of an artist as we dream them: rigor and probity, sensitivity and perseverance but also what is rarer, a sense of solidarity that makes you marry noble causes. In addition, I congratulate you, it is the first time in the world that a painter passes directly from the poetic reality to the lyrical abstraction. It takes courage. »
Georges Mathieu (Member of the Institute) - 1984

« Your painting seems to be the fresh work of a young man. It’s so typical of real artists. I congratulate you and embrace you as a member of the great family of Art and Joy. »
Claude PICASSO - 2014

« Like the ink of scholars, Scholla’s painting is above all a state of abandonment to contemplation, for behind the apparent simplicity of the means is a rare talent of colorist, an art of epure and synthesis that invites to travel. »
