What to expect

Participate in the exhibition La Libération de la Peinture, 1945-1962 devoted to abstract painting in France and discover how artists marked by the experience of war managed to use new tools and materials to create new forms to paint the reality of their time.

Admire a selection of 75 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from the collection of the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art showing how the war, with its many atrocities, had a lasting influence on the course of art. These paintings were born in the post-war climate and developed until the early 1960s in the heart of rebuilding Europe, with Paris as the epicenter of creation and dissemination.

The itinerary proposed to you is divided into 8 thematic and chronological sections, each illustrated with a dozen works chosen for their ability to account for the main pictorial upheavals that contributed to revolutionizing abstract art.
