From 16 Oct. to 27 Jan. 2020, Felix Fénéon (1861-1944). The modern times, from Seurat to Matisse
In a few words
The Orangerie Museum is an art gallery of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings located in the west corner of the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde in Paris.
Though most famous for being the permanent home for eight Water Lilies murals by Claude Monet, the museum also contains works by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Rousseau, Alfred Sisley, Chaim Soutine and Maurice Utrillo, among others.
This autumn, in association with the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Musée de l’Orangerie pays tribute to Félix Fénéon (1861-1944), an important figure in the artistic world in the late 19th and early 20th century. The exhibition honors this extraordinary man who remains unjustly unknown and will demonstrate the different facets of this unusual character. Columnist, editor at the Revue Blanche, art critic, publisher - he published Rimbaud’s ‘Illuminations’ -, and gallery owner, Fénéon was also an exceptional collector who amassed a large number of masterpieces including a unique set of African and Oceanian sculptures. An unconditional supporter of Neo-Impressionism, discoverer of Seurat, artistic director of the Bernheim-Jeune gallery, champion of Fauvism, Futurism and Matisse, Fénéon played a decisive role on the artistic scene in the early 20th century.
The exhibition will bring together an exceptional array of paintings and drawings by Seurat, Signac, Degas, Bonnard, Modigliani, Matisse, Derain, Severini, Balla, etc., pieces from Africa and Oceania, as well as documents and archives.
