Albert Marquet’s retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris
March 30th 2016
Eluded by Matisse and their respective friendship as well as by Fauvism, the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris proposes a retrospective of the painter Albert Marquet (1875-1947) through hundreds of exhibits.
Hardly comparable to any movement, we could describe him as a post impressionist but this is not enough. Given the paintings that depict Paris from the early twentieth century, perhaps we tend to classify him in the "contemplatives". However, when Albert Marquet catches the instant of the Parisian life with his charcoal or his ink, it turns out to be very delicate to associate him with any artistic wave.
Have we aroused your curiosity? Come discover that unknown artist at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris from the 25th March to the 21st of August 2016.
