Galerie Perrotin: last days for two major exhibitions

Until July 31, it is still possible to enjoy at the Perrotin gallery in Paris the superb exhibitions “Hartung 80” and “Rothko Hartung, une friendship multiforme”. Do not miss !

Representing the Hartung-Bergman estate since 2017, Perrotin offers two major museum exhibitions on the French artist of lyrical abstraction, in its main space and the three rooms on rue Saint Claude.

“Hartung 80” highlights his last period, always fruitful, divided into seven sequences.

Full of energy, flashes and chromatic depths, the forms resulting from a controlled gesture and happy accidents emancipate themselves. And for the first time, the gallery is organizing a very studied dialogue with the famous American abstract expressionism and Colorfield, Mark Rothko.

Under the curatorship of Thomas Schlesser director of the Hartung-Bergman Foundation, Rothko Hartung, a multifaceted friendship evokes the plastic and intimate relationships of two artists with many points in common, also through photographic archives and a documentary by Christopher Rothko, son of the ‘artist.

Exceptional loan from the National Museum of Modern Art – Center Pompidou, N ° 14 Browns over dark painted in 1963 by Rothko converses with four Hartung paintings from the same period. These high-level exhibitions, through the physical experience they provide, are unmissable.
