"Matisse, l'Atelier Rouge

These exhibits work extremely well with the building designed by Franck Gerhy. Ideal for children !

  • This fascinating LVMH Foundation exhibition has been mounted around Matisse's masterpiece "L'Atelier Rouge", which was painted in 1911. It has been conserved at MoMA in New York since 1949.
  • As the red of the canvas resonates, what exactly makes this painting so special?
  • Quite simply, Matisse depicted the interior of his studio in Issy-les-Moulineaux.
  • For the first time, all the works featured in this painting are on show: six paintings, three sculptures and one ceramic reproduced in the painting, produced between 1898 and 1911. 
  • Using archive documents and a film on the most recent discoveries, we take a fascinating look at the history of this painting.
  • And kids won't be outdone - on the contrary, it's a life-size Memory game!

Ellsworth Kelly. Shapes and colors, 1949-2015 “

  • And to continue in a universe that speaks to the youngest visitors, this second exhibition is a plunge into abstraction.
  • The shapes, colors, lines and spaces of this American painter are deciphered through a selection of masterworks brought together for the first time in Europe.
  • A surface area of 1,500m2 on two levels allows Elsworth Kelly's paintings to truly resonate.
  • An encounter with this monochrome painter of modernity reveals, despite his celebrity, aspects of abstract art little known to the general public in Europe.
