"Albert André, an intimate glimpse of a realist painter" at the museum of the château des ducs et Wurtemberg, Montbéliard.
As a key painter in the evolution of the artistic scene since the start of the 20th century, Albert André (1869-1954) flirted with the Nabis during his youth, even though he spent most of his life apart from official waves and abstraction, preferring realism.
This retrospective offers a new angle to this discrete man, who was relatively unknown in France and who produced almost 200 exhibitions around the world during his lifetime, with this one being devised by eminent gallery-owner Paul Durant-Ruel. This exhibition gathers together almost a hundred works and documents, which illustrate the artist’s intimate relationships with those close to him, his family, the art world and his friends, such as Vuillard and Vallotton.
Until 27th September. B.D
