    About this exhibition

    Special site


    Marie Laurencin (1883-1956) was a female painter active in the first half of the twentieth century. She is often introduced as a Cubist, but she is a presence who does not fit the art-historical narrative focused on avant-garde art movements and isms. Laurencin herself stated that Matisse, Derain, Picasso, and Braque, her contemporaries, were the artists who influenced her. She did not, however, imitate their styles but created her own, using pastel colors. While observing her time and its demands, she sought her own direction.

    This exhibition includes about 40 works by Laurencin from the Ishibashi Foundation Collection and museums in Japan and abroad, plus 25 related materials, including her illustrations for books, and 25 works by painters who were her contemporaries. Through approximately 90 works, the exhibition introduces Laurencin’s oeuvre in terms of multiple themes, and, comparing her work with that of other painters with whom she is connected, explores the fascinating nature of her paintings.

    Biography

    Marie Laurencin painting 《Three Young Women》, c.1953, Musée Marie Laurencin

    Marie Laurencin

    arie Laurencin (1883-1956) studied at the Académie Humbert and then began her career as a Cubist painter. In 1914, she married a German baron and automatically acquired German citizenship. Thus, when World War I began, she was compelled to seek asylum outside of France. In 1920, she chose divorce. Returning to Paris, she achieved success at a solo exhibition in 1921. She lived almost entirely in Paris, even after the outbreak of World War II, and continued creating there until her death, at seventy-two, in 1956.
