Ker-Xavier Roussel. Private Garden, Dreamed Garden
From July 27 to November 11, 2019
The exhibition Ker-Xavier Roussel. Private Garden, Dreamed Garden will present around one hundred works by the painter Ker-Xavier Roussel (1867–1944), ranging from his Nabis experiments of the 1890s to his huge, powerful mythological narrative works, which he worked on at the turn of the 20th century. The exhibition will showcase the artist’s decorative power, as well as prints evoking the melancholy of turn-of-the-century Symbolism. The show will also provide an opportunity to reconstitute certain decorative works that have been split up and whose format and colour palette are sure to come as a surprise.
Curator: Mathias Chivot
