Beaux Arts Special Edition / Félix Fénéon (1861-1944). The modern times, from Seurat to Matisse
The Museums of Orsay and Orangery, the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac and The Museum of Modern Art pay tribute for the first time to Félix Fénéon, a major player in the artistic world at the end of the 19th century and the turn of the 20th century.
The exhibition will show the different facets of this unique character, with his Quaker physique and dry humour, who was able to reconcile his career as a model civil servant, artistic commitment and anarchist convictions. This commitment goes hand in hand with the development of an extraordinary personal collection in which, alongside the paintings of his friends Seurat, Vuillard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Braque, Matisse and Modigliani, appears one of the most important art ensembles in Africa and Oceania of the time. This is a reference collection, whose worldwide influence and influence on the artistic avant-garde of the 1930s is well established.
