From 18 September to 7 December, Louvre Abu Dhabi will journey back in time to the Parisian art scene of the first half of the 20th century. Featuring around 85 works by leading avant-garde artists, Rendezvous in Paris: Picasso,Chagall, Modigliani & Co. (1900-1939) will explore works produced by foreign artists living in the French capital at this time.
Featuring some of the most notable names of the 20th century Avant-Garde scene, Louvre Abu Dhabi’s upcoming exhibition, Rendezvous in Paris: Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani & Co. (1900-1939), will include more than 80 works by many artists. The exhibition will trace the creative output of emigrant artists living and working in Paris throughout the first half of the 20th century.
The first exhibition in Louvre Abu Dhabi’s new season, ‘Changing Societies’, Rendezvous in Paris: Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani & Co. (1900-1939) will be held in partnership with Paris’ Centre Pompidou and organised with Agence France-Muséums. Through paintings, sculptures and photographs by some 50 avant-garde artists, the exhibition will explore the Paris of the ‘Roaring Twenties’. Paris’ dynamism and cosmopolitan nature made it an attractive, Bohemian hub for artists from across Europe, many of whom left their home countries in the post-World War I years in search of a place where they could express themselves creatively.
Gathering in cafés, salons, studios and galleries, this artistic community transformed the ‘City of Lights’ into the creative heart of Europe, with their experimentation with radical expressions of colour and form producing some of the most iconic artworks in history.
