Manguin, the Joy of Colour

Exhibition from July 14 to November 5, 2017


Henri Manguin, described as the ‘voluptuous painter’ by Apollinaire, celebrated the joy of life through Arcadian themes, nudes, Mediterranean landscapes, scenes of family life and still lifes.


From his formative years, when his first experiments in Impressionism were accompanied by the teaching of Gustave Moreau, to the First World War, the artist remained true to the expression of a harmonious sensuality.


The exhibition Manguin, the Joy of Colour at the musée des impressionnismes Giverny features around ninety works that retrace the career of this friend of Henri Matisse. It focuses on the period when Manguin, who from an early age demonstrated an exceptional talent for the inventive use of colour harmonies, worked in tandem with – and sometimes anticipated – the bold innovations of the Fauves, with whom he exhibited at the Salon d'Automne of 1905.
