Beginning February 27, 2014, Dominique Lévy and Galerie Perrotin will jointly present the first American exhibition in half a century devoted to the work of seminal postwar French artist, Germaine Richier (1902–1959).
On view in the landmark building at 909 Madison Avenue where both galleries reside, “Germaine Richier” will present more than forty important sculptures ranging from early torsos and figures, to startling hybrids of humans crossed with bats, toads, spiders, and vegetal organisms, that brought the artist international recognition before her untimely death at the age of 57.
GERMAINE RICHIER, La Forêt, 1946, Dark patinated bronze
GERMAINE RICHIER, La Sauterelle, grande, 1955-1956, Dark patinated bronze
GERMAINE RICHIER, Le Sablier III, 1953, Dark patinated bronze
“Germaine Richier” will explore the daring ways in which Richier’s art bridges the tradition of classical figurative sculpture with an idiosyncratic visual language born of an anguished, searching, and, ultimately, spiritual post-World War psyche.
“Germaine Richier” will be on view to the public at 909 Madison Avenue at East 73rd Street, from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM until 6 PM, and by appointment.
