Toyen – Die Pariser Jahre (Kabinett Ausstellung)
07.05.2023 – 16.07.2023
Toyen (actually: Marie Čermínová) first studied in her hometown at the art academy before moving to Paris, where she joined André Breton’s circle. She created her most important works between 1928 and 1938, some of which anticipate the post-war Art Informel movement and, despite their rather small formats, testify to great plasticity and spatial awareness. During the Second World War she had to go into hiding because her pictures were considered degenerate. The exhibition only shows the book illustrations created in Paris.
The exhibition is sponsored by Zdenek Sklenar Gallery, Prague.
