AROUND KOURO COLLECTION
The early 2017 presentation of Jack Kouro’s collection in three Parisian galleries: Le Minotaure, Alain le Gaillard and Jean-François Cazeau is an introduction to the history of geometrical abstraction in the 20th century. An enlightened collector, Jack Kouro was an intimate friend of Auguste Herbin, an abstract painter.
This exhibition offers an exceptional journey into the great moments of non-objective art, from the 1920s to the 1950s. It tackles the international movements and associations such as De Stijl, Cercle et Carré, Concrete Art and Abstraction-Création as well as the famous Salon of the New Realities (Salon des Réalités Nouvelles), an abstract art circle which gave all Paris the run-around at the end of World War II.
Auguste Herbin is the red thread of the exhibition; a painter privileged by the Kouro collection, greatly active in the recognition of Abstract Art in France, at a time when it was still very controversial.
