The strange case of Victor Browner

In collaboration with the Paris Museum of Modern Art, the Barnes Foundation presents the exhibition “The strange case of Victor Browner". The exposition is one of the first major American retrospectives on the influential surrealist.

Victor Browner (1903–1966), born in a small town in Romania and working in Paris, played a key role in surrealistic circles, creating a variety of fairy-tale images throughout his career. Pictures of characters, including figures with extra extremities and eyes, inhabit his paintings, while his sculptural forms blur the boundaries between animate and inanimate objects.
