Ker-Xavier Roussel retrospective
GIVERNY. NEAR PARIS. For the first time since 1968, a museum hosts a major exhibition dedicated to Ker-Xavier Roussel. An important figure of the French art scene from the late 19th century to the WWII, he has been overshadowed by contemporaries during the last decades. Featuring around hundred paintings, drawings, pastels and lithographs, this excellent retrospective titled “Ker-Xavier Roussel. Private Garden, Dreamed Garden” sheds a new light on this artist who first joined the Nabis before running counter to the new artistic movements emerging at the turn of the 20th century and embracing a Post-Impressionist style. Works on display show all the aspects of his production: rural landscapes, mythological scenes, lithographs illustrating a poem by Maurice de Guérin, life-sized decorative paintings for public or private interiors and so on. Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny. 99 rue Claude Monet, 27620 Giverny. Open every day from 10am to 6pm. Admission : €7.50 / €5. Information : 0232519465
