From the Douanier Rousseau to Séraphine: The Great Naive Masters

Musée Maillol, Paris

11 Sep 2019 - 19 Jan 2020

This broad survey of ‘naive’ artists includes celebrated painters such as Henri ‘Le Douanier’ Rousseau and Séraphine Louis, whom the critic Wilhelm Uhde dubbed ‘modern primitives’ for their untutored and idiosyncratic paintings, as well as work by less well-known artists such as Camille Bombois and Dominique Peyronnet. Find out more from the Musée Maillol’s website.
