Taking a fascinating journey through the birth and development of Cubism, a selction of rarely-seen paintings, rich in vitality and colour.
Praised by Apollinaire, André Salmon and others, Albert Gleizes and Jean Metzinger played a leading role in the spread of Cubism both in France and further afield. To celebrate the centenary of On Cubism, their first theoretical treatise on the subject, the Museum of Lodeve is collaborating with the Postal Museum of France to pay tribute to them.
Eighty paintings and drawings, documents, and films and several works from others in the Cubist milieu testify to this pictorial adventure.
This is the first exhibition in Europe of Jean Metzinger's work since his death in 1956.
