The next exhibition at Musée de l’Orangerie will offer a dialog between two painters, Chaim Soutine and Willem de Kooning, and will show the origins and artistic styles of these two post-war artists.
Soutine was an expressionist and figurative artist and was a major source of inspiration for Willem de Kooning whom himself had a true revelation when discovering Soutine’s paintings in the US. De Kooning was then influenced in his own figurative and abstract works, which can be notified by looking at the 50 pieces presented in the exhibition.
These two artists had a strong role in the creation of a new artistic movement, influencing and paying tribute one to another over their career.
Running from September 15th 2021 until January 10th 2022
