Geometric Sensitivity

Geometric Sensitivity

Jean Deyrolle, Emile Gilioli, Jean Leppien, Alberto Magnelli

Alberto Magnelli (1888-1971), Jean Leppien (1910-1991), Jean Deyrolle (1911-1967), and Emile Gilioli (1911-1977), brought together by the Galerie Lahumière for a show titled Géométries Sensibles, represent the rebirth of geometric abstraction in France after the Second World War. These artists—born between the end of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth, in Germany, Italy, or France—were not always at the same stage of artistic development, the war having been a period of exile, imprisonment, isolation, and great destitution.
