Celebrating Bastille day 🇫🇷 with "Le rendez-vous (14 Juillet 1982)" by Jean Dubuffet on view in our current exhibition Masterworks
.
"Le rendez-vous (14 Juillet 1982)" is a striking expression of Dubuffet's "Random Sites" series, which includes 150 paintings that range from February 1 to September 18, 1982. With rare exceptions, they are all the same format 67 x 100 cm. This series is characterized by⁠ the representation of an undefined site, where two or three figures emerge, the characters deprived of particularities. The contrast between primary colors imposes these three characters presence and their peripheral gaze towards the site surrounding them.⁠

Italian artist Piero Manzoni was born on this day! Best known for his ironic approach to avant-garde art, Manzoni’s brief career (1933-1963) was one of the most inventive of the twentieth century, producing a series of artworks that call into question the nature of the art object, directly prefiguring Conceptual Art.
His work eschews normal artist's materials, instead using everything from rabbit fur to human excrement in order to "tap mythological sources and to realize authentic and universal values". In response to Klein's paintings, Manzoni experimented with a series of works all lacking color. In 1957 Manzoni began making his Achromes series, works of art purged of color and characterized by unconventional surfaces that he referred to as "the living flesh." Manzoni encouraged interpretation of his work to focus on the physical matter of which it was made. In this work, one of dozens Manzoni created using white fiberglass wool, the artist modeled the work's surface into hairlike tufts and curls. Then, as he described, he "kept on going, making others of straw and plastic, and a series of paintings, which were all white."

Happy Fourth of July courtesy of Joan Miró 'Femme et Oiseaux', 1940 now on view at the Matisse Museum.
.
'Femme et Oiseaux' is the eighth from a series of twenty-three extraordinary works collectively known as Constellations which Miró created between January 1940 and September 1941 and which are now widely considered as the masterpieces of his prolific œuvre.
.
Writing to his New York dealer Pierre Matisse on 4th February 1940 about this group of works Miró confided: 'I am now working on a series of 15 to 20 paintings in tempera and oil, dimensions 38 x 46, which has become very important. I feel that it is one of the most important things I have done, and even though the formats are small, they give the impression of large frescoes. With this series... you could do a very, very fine exhibition. I am planning to work on these paintings, using a very elaborate technique, for about 3 months - making allowance for the fact that fortunately, they will lead me to conceive of other works which I will prepare at the same time.... With the series of 38 x 46 canvases [sic.] I am working on now, I can't even send you the finished ones, since I must have them all in front of me the whole time - to maintain the momentum and the mental state I need in order to do the entire group' (Joan Miró: Selected Writings and Interviews, Boston, 1986).

The Nahmad Collection is pleased to contribute to 'Garden side. From Monet to Bonnard' at The Museum of Impressionisms, in Giverny, France now open to the public! 🌼
.
The Museum of Impressionisms, in Giverny, France will present a unique exhibition about the gardens: 'Garden side. From Monet to Bonnard', curated by Cyrille Sciama, director of the Museum, and Mathias Chivot, art historian and independent curator. The exhibition will bring together a hundred paintings, drawings and prints, illustrating the representation of the garden between 1870 and 1890, from a new angle: the sensitivity to the garden. Because although many exhibitions have already dealt with the general subject of the garden and also the theme of the garden among the Impressionists, this will be the first time that a project will confront the contradictory and complementary visions that unite the Impressionists and the Nabis.

"I could see no reason why used tram tickets, bits of driftwood, buttons and old junk from attics and rubbish heaps should not serve well as materials for paintings; they suited the purpose just as well as factory-made paints. … It is possible to cry out using bits of old rubbish, and that’s what I did, gluing and nailing them together."
(Kurt Schwitters)
.
Kurt Schwitters "Ohne Titel (Frankreich)", 1946-47 was last featured in Summer 2019 for the Exhibition "Kurt Schwitters: A Selection of Collages" at Nahmad Contemporary, presenting the works of 20th century’s great master of collage and forefather of assemblage, the exhibition highlighted a collection of abstract collages that the artist created between the 1920s and 1940s.

The Nahmad Collection is pleased to contribute to the exhibition "Pierre Matisse, an Art Dealer in New York" opening next week at the Matisse Museum in Nice, France.
.
Hosting a large exhibition devoted to Pierre Matisse, the Matisse Museum revisits the exceptional career of Henri Matisse’s youngest son, a New York art dealer and a key figure of the 20th century art world.
.
For about sixty years, the Pierre Matisse Gallery played a prominent role in the art world: it tirelessly championed French and European modern art in the United States during a key period which saw the formation of major private and institutional American collections. The 300 or so exhibitions organised at the gallery allowed a generation of European artists to gain visibility and take part in the New York art scene.

Dufy_la Fee Electricite

Raoul's Dufy was born on this day! Throwback to Dufy's colossal mural "La Fée Électricité“ (“The Electricity Fairy”) commissioned for the 1937 International Exposition now on view at The Museum of Modern Art Paris.
.
The composition unfolds across 600 m2 (1969 feet), from right to left, on two principal themes: the history of electricity and its applications – from the first observations to the most modern technical applications of it. Dufy depicted one hundred and ten portraits of scientists and inventors who contributed to the development of electricity, blending mythology and allegories with historical accuracy. In the centre we can see the Olympian gods and the Ivry-sur-Seine power-station generators connected by Zeus’s thunderbolt; primordial nature and architecture; people at their daily work and modern machines. The left side depicts Iris, messenger of the gods and daughter of Electra, flying in the light, over an orchestra and the capitals of the world, diffusing all the colors of the rainbow. 🌈
