Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

Hans HartungLa fabrique du geste

On the occasion of its re-opening after extensive renovation work, the Museum of Modern Art presents a retrospective of work by the painter Hans Hartung (1904-1989).

The exhibition will take a new look at his entire oeuvre and his essential role as a trailblazer in the history of abstraction.

Hans Hartung was a major 20th century artist and experiment was central to his work. The exhibition will be an opportunity to discover the vast array of supports the artist used, the variety of his techniques, the wealth of technical innovations he developed and the wide range of tools he experimented with.

A large number of works will be on display: oils on canvas, drawings, photographs, sculptures, ceramics and archive documents.

This tribute to Hans Hartung is the first exhibition in the refurbished spaces of the museum and follows the acquisition by the Museum of a large number of the artist's works in recent years.
