Gérard Garouste

The Centre Georges Pompidou is holding a retrospective exhibition devoted to Gérard Garouste, one of the most important contemporary French painters, born in 1946, who is a figurationist without concession. Gérard Garouste was a student at the Beaux-arts de Paris at the end of the 1960s, and his reading of Marcel Duchamp’s interviews with Pierre Cabanne prompted him to defy the ban on painting at a time when conceptual practices were the order of the day. Thus, he became a painter, in the most traditional sense of the term, focusing on technique, which he never ceased to perfect, by observing the masters in the Louvre: Poussin, El Greco, Tintoretto… In the 1980s, he began to create large paintings under the sign of Greek mythology, to which he superimposed his personal mythology around the figures of the Classic, the Indian, the Apollonian and the Dionysian, which, according to him, is in all of us. Alongside 120 major paintings, often of very large format, the exhibition also gives a place to the sculpture and graphic work. This exhibition allows us to grasp the full richness of Gérard Garouste’s unclassifiable career, whose life of study, but also of madness, and his enigmatic work, feed off each other in a striking dialogue. With his large figurative canvases, the artist revisits the history of art through the genres of painting, which he seeks to exhaust. The exhibition dedicated to him follows step by step the path and the personal mythology of one of the most important French painters.   Museum : Centre Georges Pompidou Address : Place Georges Pompidou 75004 Paris Price : 15€.

Jade, from emperors to Art déco

From the emperors of China – great intercessors between Heaven and 4 Earth -, who considered it a natural jewel, up to Cartier and the leading London and New York jewellers who sublimated it in the 20th century in the Art Déco creations inspired by the Chinese taste, jade remains this eternal and mythical stone, an object of fascination and absolute power for the sovereign. Some 330 exceptional pieces will be assembled for the first time in France, coming from 15 prestigious national and international institutions including the National Palace Museum, Taipei, which is lending almost a third of the works on display. A unique opportunity for the MNAAG to present this “beautiful stone”, “the image of goodness” for Confucius, and unfold the millennial history that, since the Neolithic Period up to the 1920s, has constantly pondered over its beauty, its virtue, its symbol and its prestige. 19 October 2016 – 16 January 2017 Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet : 6, place d’Iéna- 75116 Paris

Exhibition Rembrandt in confidence

As the uncontested master of Dutch art in the seventeenth century, Rembrandt was one of the greatest artists of his era. Possessing remarkable creative power, Rembrandt’s works explore the destiny of mankind as a whole, while focusing on representations of his inner circle. The artist represented his family and close friends—such as his wife Saskia, his last mistress Hendrickje Stoffels, and his son Titus—in numerous studies he executed throughout his life, along with works in which he was the subject; he perfected the art of the self-portrait. The exhibition comprises around twenty pictures and thirty graphic works, thanks to a series of exceptional loans from New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, the National Gallery of London, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Musée du Louvre, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.  The selection of drawings and engravings perfectly complements the paintings and enables the visitors to discover every facet of Rembrandt’s immense talent.
