FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON: EGON SCHIELE AND JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

The Fondation Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce that its fall exhibits will be devoted to two exceptional 20th century artists: Egon Schiele and Jean Michel Basquiat.

In Fall, the Fondation will host two major exhibitions: one is dedicated to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the other one to Egon Schiele.

EGON SCHIELE
Egon Schiele’s work is indissociable from the Viennese spirit of the early 20th century. In just a few years, his drawing emerged as one of the peaks of expressionism. At odds with the Academy, which he entered precociously, he founded the Neukunstgruppe in 1909 and, thanks to Gustav Klimt, discovered the work of Van Gogh, Munch and Toorop. The exhibition brings together some 100 works: drawings, gouaches, and paintings.

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT
The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, is spread over four levels of Frank Gehry’s building.

The exhibition covers the painter’s whole career, from 1980 to 1988, focusing on 120 defining works. With the Heads from 1981-1982, gathered for the first time here, and the presentation of several collaborations between Basquiat and Warhol, the exhibition includes works previously unseen in Europe.

Opening October 3rd, 2018.
