Soulages

On the occasion of Pierre Soulages’ 100th anniversary, the Centre Pompidou celebrates, at the heart of its collections, the deep and faithful links that unite the artist with the Musée national d’art moderne. Through a selection of fourteen works dated from 1948 to 2002 (nine paintings, one ink on paper, one etching, two walnut scraps and one lithograph), photographs, handwritten and printed documents, the exhibition shows how Pierre Soulages became one of the major figures of the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century by deeply renewing the language of post-war abstraction.
