Pierre Soulages: A Century

Pierre Soulages, 1965

The Lévy Gorvy Gallery in New York is pleased to announce “Pierre Soulages: A Century”, an exhibition celebrating the 100th birthday of France’s foremost living artist through a presentation of works spanning his career from the 1950s to today. On view from September 5 through October 26, 2019, this focused survey explores the artist’s enduring role in the dialogue between European and American painting and invites viewers to consider the impact of a practice that has injected profound poetry into radical abstraction through its adherence to a single material: black paint.

Yousuf Karsh photographed Pierre Soulages in France in April, 1965. Other artists who were photographed in France that month include Jean-Paul Riopelle and Ossip Zadkine.
