"Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso" at the Grand Palais
There is probably no such exemple as surprising, in the twentieth century, of a major artist forgotten as that of Amadeo de Souza Cardoso. Passing away at thirty years-old due to the Spanish flu epidemic, after having left early, at the beginning of the war, that Parisian avant-guarde of which he was one of the most original figures, the artist came out of the radar screens and has kept his celebrity in his own country. Yet it had the time to leave stunning artwork , both engaged with all the aesthetic revolutions of his time and unlike any other. The exhibition that the Grand Palais is devoting to him brings together 300 works (paintings, drawings, prints, photographs) including some works by contemporary artists whom de Souza-Cardoso was close to. Rediscovering his work should only be more striking.
