Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris – New Presentation of Permanent Collections
In the wake of the renovation of its exhibition spaces, the Museum is offering a new visitor itinerary punctuated by encounters with the unexpected.
Breaching the boundaries between traditional art movements, this presentation highlights such flagship items as Pierre Bonnard’s Nude in the Bath and Henri Laurens’ Spanish Dancer; works by Robert Delaunay, Foujita, Amedeo Modigliani, Marc Chagall, František Kupka, Raoul Dufy and others; and rarely exhibited pieces by artists including Laure Garcin, Natalia Goncharova and Chana Orloff. Interacting with the collection’s founding works are the latest acquisitions, by Otto Freundlich, Etienne Cournault, Léon Tutundjian, Karel Appel, Jean Atlan, Lucio Fontana, Man Ray and Willi Baumeister. The itinerary is also interspersed with signature single artist segments: Picabia, Giorgio de Chirico and the entire Vollard Suite of 100 Picasso engravings from 1930 – 1937.
