Exposition Suzanne Valadon et Maurice Utrillo

Exposition Suzanne Valadon et Maurice Utrillo

Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938) started her career in art modelling for painters like Lautrec, Renoir, and Erik Satie, but was encouraged to pursue her own path by early Impressionist master Edgar Degas. She went on to have a remarkable career, creating powerful portraits and still-lifes, and eventually becoming the first woman admitted to the French Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Her son, Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955), also took up fine art and went on to find success with delicate landscape paintings. This exhibit, held to mark 150 years since Valadon's birth, aims to look at the duo from new perspectives, highlighting the fact that Utrillo's work bears little resemblance to his mother's, and that the two were clearly independent artists.
