Exhibition catalogue "The masterpieces of the Yvon Lambert donation" shown at the Hotel de Caumont, Avignon (France), From July 7th to Nov. 11th, 2012.
Yvon Lambert has amassed the collection representing his tastes, aspirations and passions since the sixties. The dealer-collector rejected academicism and soon realised that the world’s creative centre had shifted from the Paris of the Glory Years to a triumphant America.
In avant-garde style, he imported from the U.S. the Minimalist, Conceptual, and Land art works that form the basis of the collection. In the eighties, Lambert turned towards a new form of painting that was more figurative; in the nineties, photography caught his eye. Since the nineties, video art, installations and painting have formed the backbone of his acquisitions, enhancing the collection with the work of young up-and-coming creators.
