    From opposite ends of the 20th century, from Vienna to New York, the lives and works of Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat are fascinating for their fleetingness and their intensity.

    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.
    The exhibition brings together some 100 works: drawings, gouaches, and paintings. Among them, « Self-Portrait with a Chinese Lantern Plant » (1912), on loan from the Leopold Museum (Vienna), “Pregnant Woman and Death” (1911), from the Národní gallery (Poland), “Portrait of the Artist’s Wife Seated, Holding Her Right Leg” (1917) from the Morgan Library & Museum (New York), “Standing Nude with Blue Sheet” (1914) from the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, “Seated Male Nude” (1910) from the Neue Galerie New York, and “Self-Portrait” (1912) from the National Gallery of Art, Washington.

    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, essential works such as "Obnoxious Liberals" (1982), "In Italian" (1983), and "Riding with Death" (1988), as well as paintings which have rarely been seen since their first presentations during the artist’s lifetime, such as "Offensive Orange" (1982), "Untitled (Boxer)" (1982), and "Untitled (Yellow Tar and Feathers)" (1982).

    From October 3rd, 2018 to January 14th, 2019

  • REOPENING OF LA GALERIE ASNIÈRES

    • REOPENING OF LA GALERIE ASNIÈRES - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Every weekend from October 20th to November 25th, la Galerie will reopen its doors to the public.

    The Asnières atelier is a pivotal location. Barely five years after founding Louis Vuitton, Louis himself began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshop to Asnières, a village a few kilometers northwest of Paris. 

    This new atelier was built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders. 

    Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in detail the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creation.

    Book your visit at la Galerie Asnières here.
