Soulages at the Louvre

Musée du Louvre, Paris

NOW CLOSED

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.
