Galerie Jean-François Cazeau is proud to present on Artsy a selection of works included in it’s presentation at ArtMonte-Carlo 2018. The exhibition aims to represent in the best of it’s ability the high level art that the gallery deals in throughout the calendar year.
Anchored in the first half of the 20th century, it is also important for the gallery to showcase some of the masters of post-war and contemporary art, which are continuing to build art history, as the impressionist and modern masters did half a century before them. In this year’s hanging, Picasso and Giacometti will be put in dialogue with Kusama and Cesar, Herbin and Hartung will showcase their different but essentially complementary abstraction, the americans Joan Mitchell and Phillip Guston will accompany the Art Brut of french artist Gaston Chaissac, and the surrealist lines of André Masson’s bronze will come complement de drawings of Modigliani and Gauguin. The exhibition also brings to light the different techniques that have made up the 20th century artistic landscape: Oil, Acrylic, Gouache, Pencil, Watercolor, Canvas, Paper, Linocut, Bronze, Iron, Wood, Ceramic...all come together to demonstrate how artistically rich the century was and how these masters always pushed the boundaries of their respective mediums further.
After working for over twenty years, with his uncle Philippe, one of the greatest Impressionist and Modern Art dealers of his generation, Jean-François Cazeau opened his gallery in September 2009 in the heart of the Marais district of Paris, rue Sainte-Anastase, a few steps away from the Picasso Museum. Jean-François Cazeau uses his knowledgeable expertise and advice on Impressionist and Modern Art in keeping with a family tradition, whilst also paying close attention to the transformations of his era and being involved in the Contemporary Art Market. This dual ambition has made the gallery a major actor of the French and international art scenes.
