A collection of 100 or so diverse works from a close companion of Matisse.
Borrowing elements from all sorts of different artistic schools, from post-impressionism to fauvism, many of Albert Marquet’s diverse works are unclassifiable and yet his muted style is always entirely recognisable. A close companion of Matisse, the French painter spent most of his life between rural Arcueil and Paris and later became obsessed by landscape-painting and creating series of alike-but-not-quite-alike canvases. The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris dedicates this exhibit to a hundred or so of the artist’s drawings and paintings.
