Panorama 04/12 La rédaction vous propose un tour d'horizon à chaud des expositions parisiennes d'avril. Du Musée d’Art Moderne à la galerie Jocelyn Wolff en passant par les galeries nationales du Grand Palais, découvrez 13 expositions passées au crible.

Boijmans Van Beuningen has over 70,000 sheets, which makes it one of the richest collections of prints and drawings in Europe. These include prominent subsets of work by Italian, German, Dutch and French masters.

In recent decades the museum has focused on contemporary drawings, with the accent on work with a surrealistic mentality. All these drawings are rooted in some form of automatic imagination. They feature an almost outsider-like concentration, and strive to create their own world view.

These contemporary drawings form a bridge to the museum’s modest but impressive surreal core collection, which includes well-known works by Dali and Magritte, as well as members of André Breton’s Paris circle. The museum did not shrink from acquiring a representative block of work by a particular artist, or collecting drawings which are exceptional for their size. And often they looked beyond their own borders.

The present exhibition includes some seventy works by such born artists as Oscar de Las Flores, Peter Feiler, Ewoud van Rijn, Charles Avery, Krijn de Koning, Charlie Roberts, Ronald Cornelissen, Elmar Trenkwalder, Paul van der Eerden, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Chris Hipkiss, KinkeKooi, Robert McNally, Paul Noble, ManfreDuSchu, Hans de Wit, Jason Fox. This collection demonstrates that the art of drawing is a lively, contemporary, and appealing discipline.
