Landernau: "Hartung and the lyrical painters"
at the Fonds Hélène and Edouard Leclerc.
In the twentieth century, Hans Hartung emerged as one of the central figures of a painting freed from classical rules as well as the temptation of a new academicism: an abstract painting, in which a very expressive form prevails. This painting, while emancipated, remains inhabited by a keen sense of control, a chosen adhesion to mastery. This exhibition seeks to show the vision of an artist whose consistency of project is absolutely remarkable, but whose journey remains rhythmic by surprising variations of execution. Better still, thanks to exceptional loans, this exhibition brings Hartung into resonance with other artists, those historically linked to the “lyrical abstraction” of the early 1950s: Georges Mathieu, Gérard Schneider and the first Hantaï.
