Germaine Richier at the Pompidou Center

In homage to Germaine Richier, the first woman sculptor to be exhibited at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in 1956, this retrospective brings together nearly 200 works - sculptures, engravings and drawings. 

Based on unpublished research, the exhibition demonstrates the extent to which Germaine Richier occupies a central place in the history of modern sculptureas a link between Rodin and the first Caesar.

Trained in the tradition of Auguste Rodin and Antoine BourdelleIn just over 25 years, between the 1930s and her premature death in 1959, Germaine Richier established herself as profoundly original and radical. 

The course of the exhibition traces his artistic trajectory in chronological orderby highlighting the main themes (human, animal, myths) that nourished her practice as a sculptor. She reveals how Richier revitalized the figure, forging new images of man and woman in the post-war period.

The workshop

Driftwood, bat skeletons, turtle shells, pebbles, shells...

So many objects that inspired Germaine Richier, from her private studio in Paris, are presented in this exhibition. They bear witness to her interest in objects charged with history and in the forms of the living.
