Hartung et les peintres lyriques

Thanks to a number of exceptional loans, this exhibition brings Hartung into resonance with those artists historically linked to the ‘Lyrical Abstraction’ movement of the early 1950s. A remarkable and memorable comparative perspective

Curator : Xavier Douroux

In the twentieth century, Hans Hartung (1904-1989) emerged as one of the key advocators of a style of painting free from classical rules and the temptations of a new form of academicism. His was an abstract painting, characterized by its expressive craftsmanship. His arrangements gave rise to ample shapes and powerful colour contrasts.
This exhibition puts Hartung in perspective with other artists such as Georges Mathieu, Gérard Schneider, Helen Frankenthaler, Willem De Kooning, Cy Twombly, Shirley Jaffe, Albert Oehlen, Sigmar Polke, etc.
