Exhibition Catalogue Jean Fautrier. Texture and Light, presented at the Musée d'art moderne de Paris (26 jan. _ 20 may 2018).
Rarely exhibited, this solitary figure is now considered the most significant precursor of Informal Art in 1928, the inventor of thick impasto in 1940 and a cardinal contributor to the revitalisation of modern art after Cubism.
This exhibition comprises some 200 works – close to 160 paintings, drawings and prints, and a substantial group of sculptures – from numerous public and private collections in France and abroad. It will include practically the whole of the artist's donation to the museum, plus later gifts and acquisitions; with over 60 works, the Musée d’Art Moderne now has the largest Fautrier collection of any museum.
The exhibition is a reprise of last summer's retrospective "Jean Fautrier" at the Kunstmuseum in Winterthur, Switzerland, with the addition of works from the Musée d'Art Moderne, other French museums, and private collections.
