From September 08 to November 11, 2023, our gallery will present an extensive exhibition of works by internationally renowned artists Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) and Sam Francis (1923-1994).
Key works by these two main protagonists of 20th century art enter into an exciting dialogue in the current exhibition. Their love of color is evident in both artistic positions as a leitmotif, both sculpturally and painterly. Highlights of the oeuvre of Niki de Saint Phalle and Sam Francis will be on display, ranging from strongly colored sculptures to works on paper. Abstract expressionism and tachist color fields meet a broad spectrum of positive figuration from five decades of both artists' creative periods.
With over 40 works, the exhibition continues the series of our successful work shows of both artists over the past 20 years. Niki de Saint Phalle was also recently honored extensively in museums at the Kunsthaus Zürich, the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt and Sam Francis at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on the occasion of his 100th birthday.
