Dear all,
I propose you to start Protected content this Exhibition with a guided tour (tickets available onProtected content
Félix Fénéon ( Protected content ) is a major player on the artistic scene at the end of the 19th and turn of the 20th centuries, but still unjustly unknown. The exhibition will show the different facets of this singular character, with his Quaker physique and dry sense of humour, who managed to reconcile a career as a model civil servant, artistic commitment and anarchist convictions. Fénéon was also an exceptional collector who brought together a large number of masterpieces including a unique collection of African and Oceanian sculptures. An unconditional supporter of Neo-Impressionism, discoverer of Seurat, artistic director of the Bernheim-Jeune gallery, defender of Fauvism, Futurism and Matisse, Fénéon's role on the artistic scene at the beginning of the 20th century was decisive.
The exhibition will bring together an exceptional collection of paintings and drawings by Seurat, Signac, Degas, Bonnard, Modigliani, Matisse, Derain, Severini, Balla, etc., African and Oceanic pieces as well as documents and archives. Organized in association with the Musée du Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac and The Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA).
The visit starts at 14.30 but we need to be there at least 15 minutes in advance.
