After Felix Fénéon and non-western arts at the Quai Branly, modern times… This is what the Musée de l’Orangerie provides with a second exhibition about Felix Fénéon from October 16, 2019 to January 27, 2020. A second chapter around works from Seurat to Matisse, more precisely, a key part devoted to the art journalist and collector who enabled the primary arts to have a place of choice on the artistic scene from the 19th century to the 20th century.
An exhibition revolving around four sections and three focuses showing “the main commitments of Fénéon in the field of arts and literature”. An exhibition that relies on the anarchist character of the man and the promotion of artists sharing the same values as his such as Seurat, Signac, Luce, Van Rysselberghe or even writers such as Gustave Kahn and Victor Barrucand.
A “fascinating [character] because of the power of his convictions” who took part in “a new aesthetic order dominated by the sensuality of colors and the rigor of shapes”. And an exhibition displaying a large array of works by Seurat, Signac, Cross and Luce commented or collected by Fénéon. The occasion to discover a new facet of this main player in the artistic world from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Let’s go, friends, shall we?
