Karel Appel: Art as Celebration!

24 Feb-20 Aug. The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris presents an exhibition of work by Dutch artist Karel Appel whose career is examined from his early days with the CoBrA movement until his death in 2006.

Formed in 1948, the avant-garde, experimental CoBrA took its name from the three cities of its founders: Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. Along with Appel, key members included Corneille, Asger Yorn and Pierre Alechinsk.

Following the group's self-dissolution in 1951, Appel continued to work in a similar vein until the 1970s when he reverted towards abstraction, before re-embracing a more painterly approach from the 1980s onwards.

The exhibition is based around a group of 21 paintings and sculptures donated recently by the Karel Appel Foundation in Amsterdam, including the artist's celebrated work Carnet d’art psychopathologique (1948-1950).

Tues-Sun 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-18.00.
