Comprising loans from private and public collections, this exhibition presents a selection of paintings and works on paper by a seminal artist of the late nineteenth century. The exhibition is curated by art historian and former National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa curator Louise d’Argencourt, and Bertrand Puvis de Chavannes, the painter’s great grandnephew, an art historian, and the President of the Comité Puvis de Chavannes. D’Argencourt also organized the first posthumous Puvis de Chavannes retrospectives at the Musée du Louvre, Paris (1976), and the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa (1977).
Michael Werner Gallery, New York is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Enrico David. These sculptures, tapestries and works on paper mine a space between figuration and abstraction, exploring the human figure as a metaphor for transformation.
