Pioneer of abstraction, Otto Freundlich (1878-1943), at the start of his career in 1908, stayed at the Bateau-Lavoir, in Montmartre, where he met Picasso, Braque and Delaunay. A committed and visionary artist, he carries a powerful message in favor of a reinvented humanism, operating a synthesis between the arts, philosophy and politics.

Catalog of the Otto Freundlich (1878-1943) exhibition, presented at the Musée de Montmartre, Paris(28 feb.2020 - 31 jan. 2021).
Stigmatized in 1937, his works of the 1910s and 1920s are partly destroyed by the Nazi regime, which denounces him as a representative of the so called "degenerate art".
Freundlich was deported and murdered in 1943. This work highlights how, through the multiplicity of his creations and his thought, he played a pioneering role in the conception of abstract art.
