🔰KUPKA 🔰Pioneer of abstraction. @le_grand_palais , 
From 21 March 2018 - 30 July 2018.
.
Kupka served as a volunteer in the First World War, and is mentioned in La Main coupée by Blaise Cendrars. Cendrars describes him as a "proud soldier, calm, placid, strong"... but really too old to be a soldier, being at least 25 years older than the rest. When the regiment set out from Paris for the front in Picardy (they marched all the way on foot) Mme Kupka met the column as they arrived at the La Défense roundabout, near where they lived. She marched with them, carrying her husband's bag and his rifle. She would have marched all the way to the front, but at the end of the first day the colonel had her arrested and sent back to Paris. She later made her way to the front lines to spend time with her husband. Kupka himself left the front due to frostbite in the foot, caused by nights in the trenches waist-deep in freezing water.

✍🏼Frantisek Kupka, Mme Autoportrait, 1946.
.
František Kupka was born in Opočno (eastern Bohemia) in Austria-Hungary in 1871. From 1889 to 1892, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. At this time, he painted historical and patriotic themes. Kupka enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where he concentrated on symbolic and allegorical subjects. He was influenced by the painter and social reformer Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach (1851–1913) and his naturistic life-style. Kupka exhibited at the Kunstverein, Vienna, in 1894. His involvement with theosophy and Eastern philosophy dates from this period. By spring 1894, Kupka had settled in Paris; there he attended the Académie Julian briefly and then studied with Jean-Pierre Laurens at the École des Beaux-Arts.

A vibrantly colored, tightly packed procession of uneven verticals nearly envelops a face painted in markedly nonnaturalistic shades of green and purple. Kupka would later say that to make this painting he had reworked an unfinished portrait of his wife, laying in strokes of color around her face until it was all but obscured by their boldly flat pattern—a method suggesting a literal assault on figuration.

Kupka is one of the great pioneers of abstract art that emerged at the beginning of the 20th Century. But his highly personal work was not only marked by his rejection of conventional representation. It revisits a history of abstract art that has its roots in Viennese symbolism nurtured by a spiritual and philosophical heritage specific to Central Europe. In equally making a foray into scientific and technical breakthroughs that open up new horizons into the unknown, this abstract art stands out as a modern poetry of colours. As a journey back to Kupka's entire career from the 19th Century up to the post-war era, this exhibition sheds light on the steps leading to this transformation. Colours do not only maintain their representative character in the first Parisian portraits but tend to convey physical and physiological emotions, becoming instruments of dynamism and finally, simplifying painting by discarding the subject to reign supreme. This universal geometrical language upholds the painting as fragment of a world of harmony that banishes the boundary between the visible and the invisible.

The masterpiece can be seen in its permanent location in Madrid since 1992. .
Painted in 1937, this monumental artwork is both a synthesis of the plastic research conducted by Picasso for 40 years and a popular icon. Exhibited, replicated all over the world, it has been at the same time an anti-franco, an anti-fascist and a pacific symbol.

Guernica in ruins, 1937
Guernica's location was at a major crossroads 10 kilometers from the front lines and between the front lines and Bilbao, the capital of Bizkaia (Biscay). Any Republican retreat towards Bilbao and any Nationalist advance towards Bilbao had to pass through Guernica. "During 25 April, many of the demoralized (Republican) troops from Marquina fell back on Guernica, which lay 10 kilometers behind the lines." Wolfram von Richthofen's war diary entry for 26 April 1937 states, "K/88 [the Condor Legion bomber force] was targeted at Guernica in order to halt and disrupt the Red withdrawal which has to pass through here." .
Under the German concept of tactical bombing, areas that were routes of transportation and troop movement were considered to be legitimate military targets, and tactical aircraft tended to operate just outside the range of friendly artillery; in the German mindset, Guernica was thus a major target in support of the Republican offensive. The following day, Richthofen wrote in his war diary, "Guernica burning."

Bombing of 26 April 1937
Guernica is a town in the province of Biscay in Basque Country. During the Spanish Civil War, it was regarded as the northern bastion of the Republican resistance movement and the center of Basque culture, adding to its significance as a target.
.
The Republican forces were made up of assorted factions (Communists, Socialists, Anarchists and others) with differing goals, but united in their opposition to the Nationalists. The Nationalists, led by General Francisco Franco, sought a return to pre-Republican Spain, based on law, order, and traditional Catholic values.
.
At about 16:30 on Monday, 26 April 1937, warplanes of the German Condor Legion, commanded by Colonel Wolfram von Richthofen, bombed Guernica for about two hours. Germany, at this time led by Hitler, had lent material support to the Nationalists. Later, intense aerial bombardment became a crucial preliminary step in the Blitzkrieg tactic.

✍🏼Pablo Picasso, La suppliante, 1937.
.
In January 1937, the Spanish Republican government commissioned Picasso to create a large mural for the Spanish display at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris. At the time, Picasso was living in Paris, where he had been named Honorary Director-in-Exile of the Prado Museum. He had last visited Spain in 1934 and never returned. His initial sketches for the project, on which he worked somewhat dispassionately from January until late April, depicted his perennial theme of the artist's studio. Immediately upon hearing reports of the 26 April bombing of Guernica, the poet Juan Larrea visited Picasso and urged him to make the bombing his subject. However, it was only on 1 May, having read George Steer's eyewitness account of the bombing (originally published in both The Times and The New York Times on 28 April), that he abandoned his initial project and started sketching a series of preliminary drawings for Guernica.

⛩ Foujita ⛩ Painting in the Roaring Twenties.
@museemaillol , 
From 7 March to 15 July 2018.
.
From 7 March to 15 July 2018, the Musée Maillol in Paris is presenting an exhibition devoted to the Japanese artist, Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita, who acquired French nationality. More than a hundred major works, originating from public and private collections, show the exceptional nature of Foujita’s period in Montparnasse.
.
The exhibition retraces the unique life of an artist whose career developed between two cultures. From the beginning of his career in Japan to his rise to fame and the discovery of his work, his career eventually led to the creation of a unique persona in the Paris of the Roaring Twenties. His recurrent themes women, cats, still lifes, children, and selfportraits are characteristic of his extensive artistic production. Foujita was part of the major modernist movements but never broke away from his distinctive approach, which was consistent with his Japanese origins and the classicism of the great Western masters. .
The exhibition shows the talent of the artist who loved drawing, and who, like his illustrious predecessor Hokusai, painted with great skill. Foujita’s drawing is incredibly assured and his lines have an exemplary calligraphic finesse, achieved through the use of sumi (Japanese black ink) on paper and in his oils. Colour played a secondary role in his works, but was used in such a decisive way that it enhances the drawing. The subtlety of the gouache and watercolour fills the forms with layers of flat colour, creating subtle effects of transparency in his oils.

⛩ Foujita ⛩ Painting in the Roaring Twenties. @museemaillol , From 7 March to 15 July 2018. . From 7 March to 15 July 2018, the Musée Maillol in Paris is presenting an exhibition devoted to the Japanese artist, Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita, who acquired French nationality. More than a hundred major works, originating from public and private collections, show the exceptional nature of Foujita’s period in Montparnasse. . The exhibition retraces the unique life of an artist whose career developed between two cultures. From the beginning of his career in Japan to his rise to fame and the discovery of his work, his career eventually led to the creation of a unique persona in the Paris of the Roaring Twenties. His recurrent themes women, cats, still lifes, children, and selfportraits are characteristic of his extensive artistic production. Foujita was part of the major modernist movements but never broke away from his distinctive approach, which was consistent with his Japanese origins and the classicism of the great Western masters. . The exhibition shows the talent of the artist who loved drawing, and who, like his illustrious predecessor Hokusai, painted with great skill. Foujita’s drawing is incredibly assured and his lines have an exemplary calligraphic finesse, achieved through the use of sumi (Japanese black ink) on paper and in his oils. Colour played a secondary role in his works, but was used in such a decisive way that it enhances the drawing. The subtlety of the gouache and watercolour fills the forms with layers of flat colour, creating subtle effects of transparency in his oils. His gold backgrounds strengthen the impression of refinement and preciousness. - #exhibition  #foujita  #art 🎨 #modernart  #japanart  #museemaillol  #paint  #japanese  #masterpiece  #exhibition  #arthistory  #artparis  #paintings  #artoftheday  #painting  #fineart  #painting  #oilpainting  #canvas  #paintings

✍🏼 Autoportrait with cat, 1928.
.
On his return to France, Foujita converted to Catholicism. He was baptised in Reims Cathedral on 14 October 1959, with René Lalou (the head of the Mumm champagne house) as his godfather and Françoise Taittinger as his godmother. This is reflected in his last major work,at the age of 80, the design, building and decoration of the Foujita Chapel in the gardens of the Mumm champagne house in Reims, France, which he completed in 1966, not long before his death.
.
Tsuguharu Foujita died of cancer on January 29, 1968, in Zürich, Switzerland and was interred in the Cimetière de Villiers-le-Bâcle, Essonne département, France. In 2003, his coffin was reinterred at the Foujita Chapel under the flagstones in the position he originally intended when constructing the chapel.

From 7 March to 15 July 2018.
🎨Youki, 1923.
.
After the breakup of his third marriage, and his flight to Brazil in 1931 (with his new love, Mady), Foujita traveled and painted all over Latin America, giving hugely successful exhibitions along the way. In Buenos Aires, Argentina, 60,000 people attended his exhibition, and more than 10,000 queued up for his autograph. In 1932 he contributed a work to the Pax Mundi, a large folio book produced by the League of Nations calling for a prolonged world peace. However, by 1933 he was welcomed back as a minor celebrity to Japan where he stayed and became a noted producer of militaristic propaganda during the war. For example, in 1938 the Imperial Navy Information Office supported his visit to China as an official war artist.
.
Foujita left Japan after the war. Today, his works can be found in the Bridgestone Museum of Art and in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, and more than 100 in the Hirano Masakichi Art Museum in Akita.
.
After the Second World War, painter Yasuo Kuniyoshi opposed Tsuguharu Foujita's art show at the Kennedy Galleries. Kuniyoshi labelled Foujita a fascist, imperialist, and expansionist.
