Suzanne Tarasieve Paris
9 Jan → 13 Mar 2021
Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm. Closed Sunday and Monday.
The Metropolis exhibition presented at the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin in 1991 was a real revelation for Suzanne Tarasieve. Exactly 72 artists were exhibited, and not the least of them! Baselitz, Lüpertz, Penck, Immendorff, Kiefer, Polke, Richter... All great names in contemporary painting! For the gallery owner, this only confirms her intuition: exhibited side by side, the works of these masters are in perfect harmony. Suzanne Tarasieve has always loved painting. She asserts that "Everything that touches the brain interests her"; Leonardo da Vinci calls painting "cosa mentale". With Métropolis, the gallery owner becomes truly aware of the importance of painting in her life, as in art history in general! For the painters chosen for this exhibition are among the greats of this world. Moreover, the title itself is borrowed directly from Leonardo da Vinci: "Every painter paints himself". An expression that has survived through the ages, since it comes from the Italian Renaissance and is reused today to refer to the German painters of the 20th century. To say how important painting has been over the years! It is not only painting that brings these artists together, but also their visions of Nazi Germany. Both disparate and harmonious, they manage to complement each other. Some of the works exhibited here are unpublished, all are masterpieces. Not to be missed if you're in Paris!
