Through a powerful connection to matter without ever excluding the depicted subject, Leroy always worked with traditional pictorial genres, like the nude and self-portrait, while reinventing the viewer's perception.
After remaining relatively unknown for many years, his oeuvre took on an international dimension in the 1980s after he met the art dealer and collector Michael Werner.
Through a rich ensemble of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and artworks from his personal collection that punctuate his evolution from 1930 to 2000,Eugène Leroy, A Donation is an invitation to discover the artistic path of this multifaceted and unusual artist.
