Charley Toorop and Jan Dibbets at Musée d’Art Moderne

 In > art culture design

The first retrospective in Paris of the work of the Dutch modern artist Charley Toorop (1891–1955). Toorop began working in the early decades of the 20th century, and spent several years in both Amsterdam and Paris. Influenced by both cubism and avant-garde cinema, Toorop’s style of painting is predominantly realist. The Musée d’Art Moderne presents over 85 of her works, the most striking of which are her forceful, almost aggressive, portraits and self-portraits. Running alongside the Toorop retrospective is an exhibition of the work of another Dutch artist, Jan Dibbets. Entitled Horizons, the exhibition presents a number of his breathtaking photographs from the 1960s, all of which play with and challenge our perception of the horizon.
Until 19 May.
