The Open Studio

When a photographer push the door of an artist

Protected by the mess in their art studios, they draw, paint, sculpt, weld or assemble. Sometimes a photographer, usually a friend, walks though the door to capture one of the artists’ portraits, a glimpse of their intimacy for a sometimes voyeuristic public. At the Gallery Bethet-Aittouares, follow these photographers into the artist’s lair, places of artistic creation where Contemporary Art is born. We present around forty original photographs from 1937 to the present day.
1937, Robert Doisneau visits Fernand Léger’s studio with Nicolas de Stael.
1954, Denise Colomb at Nicolas de Stael’s.
January 1966, Daniel Frasnay misses his appointment with Alberto Giacometti who just died. Therefore Giacometti’s brother, Diego, open the door of the studio.
In 1967, Daniel Frasnay immortalized René Magritte, with a bowler hat and an apple in his hand.
1983, Michel Dieuzaide walks through the maze of Tal-Coat paintings.
2016, Antoine Schneck resurrect Courbet at Ronan Barrot’s studio.
A wall is dedicated to Pablo Picasso with a set of photographs of André Villers, Roger Pic, Denise Colomb and Michel Sima.
