Georges Pompidou et l’art : une aventure du regard

Roger Bissière, Maria Helena Vieira da Silva

Château de Chambord, France

For the 40th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou, Chambord organizes an imporant exhibition devoted to the former President of the Republic. From the purchase of La Femme 100 tête of Max Ernst to that of a portrait of Jacques Villon,  a few days before his death in 1974, Georges Pompidou passionately watched, collected and hung at home, then at Matignon and at the Élysée, the great modern artists, but also those of the avant-gardes from the 50s to 70s.

The exhibition will bring together artists present in his collection or highlighted in places of power, according to a precipitate of three decades of French painting. The exhibition will show the relevance, and sometimes the audacity, of the eye of Pompidou, whose diversity and freedom are all the more evident today.
