"Jean Lurçat - The only noise of the Sun" at the Galerie des Gobelins
2016 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Jean Lurcat (1892-1966), painter, poet, great reviver of tapestry and member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts. The Mobilier National, in partnership with the Fondation Jean and Simone Lurçat and the Academy of Fine Arts (Institut de France) is devoting a major exhibition about him at the Galerie des Gobelins, the first in Paris since the one is 1958 at the National Museum of Modern Art. It will reveal the different facets of the career of Jean Lurçat, leader of a movement that has gathered around him a lot of artists and whose role was decisive in the history of art and the rebirth of tapestry in the twentieth century. It will also make us rediscover a singular painter who knew a great success in Europe and the United States during the interwar.
Until the 18th of September. www.mobiliernational.culture.gouv.fr
