BASQUIAT & SCHIELE AT FOUNDATION LOUIS VUITTON IN PARIS

I had an amazing time visiting two exhibitions while traveling in Paris at the Foundation Louis Vuitton. The artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Egon Schiele inspire me and I wanted to share some of my images.


Jean-Michel Basquiat

The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, is spread over four levels of Frank Gehry’s building.

The exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works. With the Heads from 1981-1982, gathered for the first time here, and the presentation of several collaborations between Basquiat and Warhol, the exhibition includes works previously unseen in Europe, essential works such as Obnoxious Liberals (1982), In Italian (1983), and Riding with Death (1988), as well as paintings which have rarely been seen since their first presentations during the artist’s lifetime, such as Offensive Orange  (1982), Untitled (Boxer) (1982), and Untitled (Yellow Tar and Feathers) (1982).

Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele’s work is indissociable from the Viennese spirit of the early 20th century. In just a few years, his drawing emerged as one of the peaks of expressionism. The exhibition brings together some 100 works - drawings, gouaches, and paintings - over more than 600m2, in the pool-level galleries (Gallery 1). It is organised chronologically across four rooms, following the concept of line and its development in the artist’s work.
