Event Description

As part of the cycle: “Women Artists from the 18th to the 20th Century”

By Gilles Genty, art historian 

In the 20th century, women artists participated even more in the avant-garde, which Guillaume Apollinaire defended with benevolence. With Marie Laurencin, who shared with him the same passion for Fauvism, Cubism and the performing arts, he had an intellectual and loving relationship that was anything but ordinary! But Apollinaire also prefaced the Natalia Goncharova-Michel Larionov exhibition at Paul Guillaume’s in 1914 and supported Sonia Delaunay, who created illustrations, invented fabrics and decorated everyday objects with radical originality. The same dynamism animated the Murnau group with, around Kandinsky, Gabrielle Münter and Mariane von Werefkin who took an active part in the adventure of the “Blaue Reiter,” prelude to that of the Bauhaus. In Russia, women artists participate in the elaboration of a new society (Natalia Goncharova with her theatre sets, Alexandra Exter and her innovative architectures for the cinema).
