Calling all contemporary art fans! The Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris – or Paris Museum of Modern Art – invites you from April 15 to August 28, 2022, to discover an exhibition focusing on French artist Eugène Leroy. An exhibition shining a light on his career, evolution, from his exhibit at the galerie Claude Bernard in Paris in 1960, to his meeting in 1982 with German collector Michael Werner.
In all, about 150 pieces of work are displayed to visitors, returning on an oh-so fruitful career, although poorly known by people. And for good reason: his work “cannot be seen at first glance”, as the museum explains. A painting that does not play on seduction or color or patterns, or even the gestuality of it… The exhibition then offers a rediscovery and a re-reading of the artist’s work, that remains yet still highly confidential.
A painter – one of the greatest one in terms of the contemporary French landscape – whose work is acknowledged and praised by many contemporary artists. The exhibition also shines a light on Eugène Leroy’s pictural research process, an artist as demanding as sensitive. This is the occasion to learn more about this painter with a certain influence.
