Perrotin and Fondation Hartung-Bergman are pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring a selection of twenty paintings and works on paper by Hans Hartung after his passing in 1989.
Following many recent solo shows in the United States, Europe, and Asia, the art of Hartung is being given pride of place once again in Japan at a time when he seems more modern than ever. In postwar Japan, Hans Hartung was acknowledged very early on as a pioneer of abstraction. In a 1953 interview he famously declared that “while impressionism, fauvism, and cubism are genres, abstraction is a liberation.” During this period, Hartung’s paintings were regularly featured in group exhibitions throughout the country. Colors, forms, fluidity, seriality — his style was unique, and his innovative practices inspired young Japanese painters while throwing down the gauntlet to art critics.
