Suzanne Valadon
Apr 19, 2024 - Sep 1, 2024
This exhibition, organized by the MNAC in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou-Metz and the Musée d’Art de Nantes, reviews the figure of the artist Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938), an emblematic figure of bohemian society in Montmartre in the early 20th century. A painter, draughtswoman and printmaker, Suzanne Valadon worked in all the genres, from portraiture and the nude to still life and landscape art.

The show will present more than 100 works, 48 of which can be seen in Barcelona: oils on canvas and cardboard, drawings and prints, sculptures in plaster and bronze, besides other documentary material that will allow us to get a retrospective and contextualized view of the career of a female artist who played an important part in Avant-garde Paris from 1910 to 1930. This view is complemented with works by contemporary French and Catalan artists, which give a good idea of the richness of the art scene in the period, while at the same time the multiple interactions that took place in Avant-garde circles and the societal conquest by women of their status as artists are explained.
