Booth D15 - Grand Palais Paris

We are featuring works by Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely (1906–1997), echoing the ongoing shows at our gallery and the Pompidou Center (to which we lent works). Another part of the stand will reflect our January show of Sole Sisters, devoted to the works of Ode Bertrand, Marcelle Cahn (1895–1981), Isabelle de Gouyon Matignon, and Aurelie Nemours (1910–2005). The catalogue raisonné of Nemours’ paintings in oil and in vinyl, edited by Serge Lemoine, has just been published, and to celebrate the event we will organize a signing of copies on our stand in presence of Serge Lemoine.

Current exhibitionFrom 9 March to 27 April

The Worlds of Vasarely

The Worlds of Vasarely

Gallery exceptionally closed from April 29th May 6th

The worlds of Vasarely are many, reflecting the diversity of visual experiences that inspire them. Their common denominator is that they all take observation as their starting point. Only scale varies: for Vasarely, abstraction is simply the consequence of adjusting perception to different levels of reality. In 1945, he created a series of collages using shapes cut out from microphotographs. Here in lies one of the keys to his approach to abstraction—it is less a matter of breaking the ties with nature than of seeking out new forms from deep within what he called nature’s "internal geometry." In this way, the world of cells and crystals opened up to him.

Sole Sisters, Four Women Exploring Geometric Abstraction

“Neither my studies, my work, nor my life was influenced by painting of any sort. I was too removed from the experiments of the time. I kept going deeper into my solitude.” Thus wrote Aurelie Nemours to me in November 2005. A few weeks later she died. Should this comment be taken as words written on the brink of life, or understood as the path taken by every artist—and perhaps every human being? The expression “go deeper into solitude” reminds us that Nemours was also a poet, even as it assumes a special meaning in this exhibition.
