Musée de l'Orangerie host an exhibition of two artists Chaïm Soutine and Willem de Kooning, from October 7, 2020 to February 1, 2021. The exhibition will feature a dialogue between the distinctive worlds of these two artists through around fifty works based on major themes: tension between figures and shapelessness, fleshiness in painting, figures and landscape, and the studio, as well as the key moments of this story, including the MoMA’s 1950 Soutine retrospective and de Kooning’s visit to the Barnes Foundation in 1952. The exhibition is organised jointly with the Barnes Foundation of Philadelphia, which holds the second-biggest collection of Soutine’s works after the Musée de l’Orangerie, constituted based on advice from Paul Guillaume, an art dealer and an advisor to Albert Barnes. It enjoys support from the Willem de Kooning Foundation, New York, and from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Tuesday
Address: Jardin Tuileries 75001
