Derain, Balthus, Giacometti

Une amitié artistique

Alberto Giacometti

Museum of modern art, Paris, France

This exceptionnal exhibition presents the friendship between three of the major artists of the 20th century : André Derain (1880-1954), Balthus (1908-2001) and Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966). United for the first time in an exhibition, the three artists shared the same definition of what art should be. They also share a strong desire for modernity and are passionately interested in the history of painting and the art of foreign civilizations.
