The PARIS 1950-1960 exhibition presents works by a group of artists, largely associated with the so-called École de Paris. This group, mostly foreigners, developping an important part of their work in the French capital during this period, contributing significantly to the artistic vitality in post-war Europe. To the most famous representatives of this period: Mark Tobey (USA), Vieira da Silva (Portugal / France), Zao Wou-Ki (DRC / France) and Árpád Szenes (Hungary / France), are added works by the Hungarian artist Marta Pan, by the Swiss painter Gérard Schneider, by the Spanish Luis Feito, by the French Charles Lapicque and Martin Barré, and by the Cuban Loló Soldevilla, whose work was recently rediscovered and presented at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, and to whom we will soon dedicate an important individual exhibition at the gallery.
