Red Hair! From Jean-Jacques Henner to Sonia Rykiel

In company of Curator Claire Bessède

Why are there so many redheads in the works of Jean-Jacques Henner ? This exhibition will address this frequently-asked question. Paintings, caricatures, writings and letters have been studied to shed new light on the work of this artist whose use of redheads became his signature. They provide a better understanding of the way the artist worked with one colour in particular: red.
