The modern artist Hans Hartung was a leading figure in the Abstraction movement during his lifetime. He would inspire many artists to look into the form and to try new things over the 20th century. While he was alive, Hartung was the subject of many great shows and had impressive retrospectives in Paris. But, the last show was in 1969 and he has become a little forgotten since his death in 1989. Thirty years on, it is time that modern audiences and art students in Paris got the chance to learn about his work and influence.
This new show at the Museum of Modern Art brings together a series of important pieces, including four acquired by the museum in 2017. This chronological show looks at pieces in a range of mediums to show the various means with which Hartung expressed himself. Come and see the show until March 1st 2019 to see why he is still an important figure today.
