Soulages at the Louvre

Musée du Louvre, Paris

11 Dec 2019 - 9 Mar 2020

To celebrate the 100th birthday of the master of ‘outrenoir’, this survey includes abstract works created in each of the last eight decades – from early experiments with materials such as walnut stain and tar, to the ‘ultra-black’ polyptychs that Soulages has worked on since 1979. Find out more from the Louvre’s website.
