On his paintings and the connection of his art to Gestalt theory:

Some connections of Georges Meurant's work to Gestalt theory were first pointed out by the French art theorist Jean Guiraud (1929-2009) in1994 (The Figure-Field). In 2012 the Italian arts psychologist Alberto Argenton and the Japanese psychologist Akiyoshi Kitaoka (specialized in visual perception and visual illusions) commented on this topic. The Austrian psychotherapist Gerhard Stemberger (Gestalt Theoretical Psychotherapy) has investigated the effects of looking at Meurant's paintings reported by people suffering from various mental problems (research report 2020 in German language, see last entry on this page).
