after, after Chitas of Alcobaça exhibition at the Musée Toile de Jouy in YvelinesGustave Caillebotte’s home in Lerís, Essonne, hosts “Portuguese Modernism”.
Where Gustave Caillebotte painted his paintings, Portuguese Modernism is found at the heart of Impressionism.
Portuguese Modernism, with roots in the 2000s to the 1960s, is a story written between Lisbon, Paris, Paris, and Lisbon. The French capital, a favorite place for artists at the time, attracted many Portuguese in search of renewal. The poet Fernando Pessoa is the guardian figure and its main founder.
“This little-known story is part of and highlights a much larger international context, from artists of different generations and styles, and modernities from all countries, from all continents.”
The exhibition highlights one hundred works by Portuguese artists to discover or rediscover. Each gave Lusitano’s modern art another look, which will cross borders.
A unique journey that leads us to rethink the history of art outside of its great personalities…
