Rendezvous in Paris: Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani & Co (1900 - 1939)
An exploration of the era of Paris in the ‘Roaring Twenties’ – a Bohemian hub for artists from across Europe, many of whom left their home countries in search of a place where they could truly express themselves. Inspired by the uniquely liberal political and cultural climate in the city, this group of artists came together at a moment of extraordinary creativity to produce some of the most innovative art of the 20th century.
For the first time in the Middle East, the exhibition presented more than 80 works including paintings, sculptures and photographs from 40 of the most significant artists of this period referred to as the ‘School of Paris’, including Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Sonia Delaunay, Giorgio De Chirico, Juan Gris, Constantin Brancusi, Tamara de Lempicka, Brassaï and others.
The exhibition was organised by Louvre Abu Dhabi, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Agence France-Muséums Curated by Christian Briend, Head Curator, Modern Art Collection, Centre Pompidou. Assisted by Anna Hiddleston, Assistant Curator, Modern Art, Centre Pompidou.
