Press release

Almine Rech Paris is holding its first monographic exhibition dedicated to Karel Appel (1921-2006), from October 12 to November 16 2019.

Appel is often described as the most influential Dutch artist of the second half of the 20th century, which is only partly true: he was of course born in Amsterdam, but in 1950, at age 29, left the Netherlands never to return. He moved to Paris with Corneille, Constant and Asger Jorn who formed the nucleus of CoBrA, a fiercely European avant-garde group founded two years earlier. “Amsterdam was the city of my youth; Paris was that of my evolution. What I learned there beats all the rest”, he later told writer Simon Vinkenoog.
