Exhibition: Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso

The Grand Palais welcomes the first major retrospective consecrated to Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso since 1958. These are 250 works from the artist that have been gathered but also some of his close friends, among them Amedeo Modigliani, Constantin Brancusi, Juan Gris or the couple Delaunay, to mention just a few. Organised by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (in French) and the Réunion des musées nationaux-Grand Palais, this large retrospective enables to rediscover the singular style of the Portuguese painter. Indeed, his works echo the different artistic movements of the 20th century, from Fauvism to Impressionism, from Cubism to Futurism. An event to discover just nearby the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni. It will also be an opportunity to discover photographs from Seydou Keïta, exhibited too at the Grand Palais until July 11th, 2016.
