This event has ended.
The French artist Robert Coutelas (1930–1985) created works from small scraps of paper with mythical imagery and poetic gouache paintings depicting part animal/part human creatures. Although humorous at first glance, a quiet sadness beats at the heart of the works of this artist who preferred a world of medieval artisanship, such as the stone masonry he learned in his youth, to flashy, fashionable art circles. Coutelas spent a long time cultivating his particular brand of folk art reflecting the people and animals of Paris and an old-fashioned French spirit. This exhibition spotlights these trends in Coutelas’ art, while also presenting early oil paintings from his time in Lyon, works on public display for the first time, and other pieces revealing his artistic practices. Let Coutelas pull you deeper into his creative universe.
