Simon Hantaï at the Fondation Louis Vuitton

Simon Hantaï at the Fondation Louis Vuitton

This spring, the Fondation Louis Vuitton presents an exhibition devoted to Simon Hantaï in celebration of the centenary of the artist’s birth (1922-2008).

Organized in collaboration with the Hantaï family and curated by Anne Baldassari, this unprecedented retrospective exhibition includes more than 130 of Simon Hantaï’s works, many of which have never been shown before, and the majority of which are large format works from 1957 to 2000.


The starting point for the didactic circuit is the painting Écriture rose (1958 – 1959), which was donated to the government by the artist. It goes on to explore the successive periods of his work, which are shown alongside the works of other major artists that influenced him. These include Henri Matisse and Jackson Pollock, whose artistic influences were decisive in Hantaï’s development, and Michel Parmentier and Daniel Buren, who were Hantaï’s peers in the 1960s scene at the Cité des Fleurs.
