Exhibition Germaine Richier, Centre Pompidou, Paris

Last days !
Exhibition until June 12

A tribute to Germaine Richier, the first female sculptor to be exhibited at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in 1956, this retrospective brings together nearly 200 works - sculptures, engravings and drawings.
Informed by previously unpublished research, the exhibition demonstrates the extent to which Germaine Richier occupies a central position in the history of modern sculpture, like a link between Rodin and the first César. Trained in the tradition of Auguste Rodin and Antoine Bourdelle, Germaine Richier asserted herself as profoundly original and radical in just over 25 years, from the 1930s until her early death in 1959. The exhibition chronologically retraces her artistic trajectory, shedding light on the major themes that nourish her sculptural practice (the human, the animal, myths...). It reveals how Richier revitalized the figure, forging new images of men and women after the war (excerpt from the exhibition presentation).

Degas in Black and White, drawings - engravings - photographs

BnF I Richelieu

May 31 - September 3, 2023

This exhibition offers a new approach to Edgar Degas' work through his constant interest in black and white which he expresses through printmaking and photography but also through drawing and painting.
Driven by an insatiable technical curiosity, the artist has built a work in black and white that has no equivalent in his day and ensures him a singular position among Impressionist artists. With one hundred and sixty pieces from the BnF 's rich collection and prestigious loans, visitors will experience the evolution of a passion that made Degas assert : « If I could have had my own way, I would have confined myself to black and white”.

One hundred and sixty works ( prints, drawings, photographs as well as a painting and a sculpture), from the BnF's collection and from French and foreign loans (musée d’Orsay, musée national Picasso, Institut national d’histoire de l’art...), (Metropolitan Museum of Art), restoring the richness of this work in various media and techniques.These exceptional pieces are related to the works by his friends Mary Cassatt and Camille Pissarro.
