Love in paris

Exhibition February 28 − March 25, 2019
For the first time, the Altman Gallery in Moscow departs from the concept of solo exhibitions and offers visitors an exhibition. "Love in Paris".

The exhibition will combine the works of ten artists, among whom - Matisse, Degas, Picasso, Chagall, Braque, Villon, Van Dongen, Boden, Karzu. In the life of each of them, Paris occupied a special place. And they are in the history and culture of the city. The exhibition will present about 30 works.

Some of them are lithographs with a special history: they were created in the 1960s as an illustration of an essay by members of the largest literary society, the Goncourt Academy. Circulation edition was 180 copies, signed by the authors.

Love and reverence in front of Paris united the masters represented at the exhibition, who found in it the spirit of freedom, harmony, love and inspiration and through it reached the apogee of their creativity.

In particular, Marc Chagall created a large cycle of works, drawing an image of a fairy-tale city and decorating the Grand Opera with his works.
