Artista Fabienne Verdier expune o serie impresionantă de picturi inspirate de teritoriul lui Cézanne, de celebrul munte Sainte-Victoire din apropiere de Aix-en Provence, Franța. Expoziția este deschisă până pe 5 ianuarie 2020 la Muzeul Grenat.
Fabienne Verdier s-a specializat în arta orientală chineză și în caligrafie, lucrările sale având o spontaneitate dată de un îndelung proces de observare, documentare și meditație.

From 21 June to 13 October 2019, three leading cultural institutions in Aix-en-Provence – the Musée Granet, the Musée du Pavillon de Vendôme and the Cité du livre, Galerie Zola – will explore various aspects of Fabienne Verdier’s work as well as her latest creations, inspired by a year of visiting sites familiar to Cézanne.
A retrospective exhibition (Prolongation until January 5, 2020, with 20 new works)
At the Musée Granet, the 450-square-meter exhibition retraces Fabienne Verdier’s journey, from her return to France from China, where she lived for over a decade, to artworks created in recent months in the quarries of Bibémus, opposite Sainte-Victoire, at the top of the legendary mountain, in Saint-Antonin and other places. This is the artist’s first retrospective in France.
This exhibition will allow visitors to appreciate the artist’s work in its entirety, to better understand the lessons she learned from Chinese scholars following the Cultural Revolution and to see how, following her return to France, Fabienne Verdier developed a new aesthetic by basing herself on major movements of Western painting, from Flemish Primitives to Abstract Expressionists. The museum’s exhibition space explores six major themes to provide an overview of the artist’s work, its evolution, depth and variety.
Finally, the exhibition also features brand-new creations from her outdoor experience in and around Cézanne landmarks, revealing for the first time how the artist was inspired by
nearly two years of exploring the mountain Sainte Victoire and places familiar to Cézanne.
