Chagall - From back and white to color

Actualité aix-en-provence

Traverser La Lumière - Roger BISSIÈRE, Jean BAZAINE, Elvire JAN, Jean LE MOAL, Alfred MANESSIER ET Gustave SINGIER. 


Musée Granet à Aix en Provence - Exposition Traverser la lumière


In 2018-2019, the traveling exhibition Traverser la lumière will defend the cause of a group of French painters, close to each other, who, after the Second World War, preferred that their works be called "non-figurative" rather than "abstract", as opposed to those of the masters of pure abstraction, in the continuity of Kandinsky and Mondrian, as well as those of "American Abstract Expressionism" (Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning ...) then in the process of establishing itself in Europe. In addition to Roger Bissière, who was both the oldest representative and in a sense the master, this stream of paint included Jean Bazaine, Elvire Jan, John Moal, Alfred Manessier and Gustave Singier.

It was in 1952 that Jean Planque, under the influence of the lesson of Cézanne, discovered very moved the painting of Alfred Manessier at the Galerie de France. This revelation marks a turning point in his approach to modern art.

From november 10,2018 to march 31, 2019
