On the occasion of Paris Gallery Weekend 2020, the Galeries Le Minotaure and Alain Le Gaillard will present an exhibition focused on the relief work of the three artists: Auguste Herbin, Étienne Béothy and César Domela whose paths crossed in the 1930s and 1940s at the Salon Abstraction Creation and Réalités Nouvelles.
Herbin, the painter, realized polychrome reliefs and sculptures already in 1920-21, looking for an outcome from the dead end of Cubism. At the beginning of the 1930s, for Béothy, the sculptor, the relief was a stage of transition between figuration and abstraction. Domela, since 1928 found in relief the issue of his previous researches, becoming one of the indisputable masters of the genre.
In our two spaces, we will show around 50 pieces, alongside the reliefs, also paintings, sculptures and works on paper. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog.
