More details

American minimalist Ellsworth Kelly moved to Paris in October 1948, with his tuition fees at the Beaux-Arts covered by the G.I. Bill. He skipped classes but immersed himself in the life of the city.

This reproduction lithograph poster, produced for his exhibition at the Galerie Maeght in 1954, came the same year that he moved back to New York, having abandoned figuration and easel painting in favour of wood cutouts, primary colours and abstraction, both richly showcased here.

Made in Paris. Imprimerie Arte.
Original lithograph 51x66cm
Galerie Maeght

Galerie Maeght

The historic gallery channels a family saga founded on a devotion to art and artists 

The leading lights of 20th-century European sculpture – Braque, Mirò, Giacometti – all grace the roster of the glittering Galerie Maeght, which was founded in Cannes in 1936 by dealer Aimé Maeght, gaining a Paris foothold a decade later, as well as historic printing press ARTE. Together with his wife Marguerite, in 1964, Aimé launched the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, on the French Riviera – France’s very first private art foundation, and a major cultural attraction in its own right.
