Pierre Puvis de Chavannes at Michael Werner
Friday November 30 2018 - Saturday February 16 2019
Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824–1898) may be one of the lesser-known figures of 19th-century painting, but as this selection of canvases and works on paper reveals, he had an outsize impact on the work of successive artists such as Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Seurat and Matisse. Generally associated with the fin de siècle Symbolist movement in Paris, Puvis built his reputation on moody, classically themed murals whose flattened figures and bluish palettes combined to create dreamy, otherworldly effects.
