Press release

Almine RechParis, Matignon is delighted to present a group show titled Portraits / Abstraits, opening on September 9, 2021, featuring a selection of artists including Karel Appel, Agustín Cárdenas, César, Antoni Clavé, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Günther Förg, Markus Lüpertz, Pablo Picasso, and Vivian Springford.

This exhibition includes abstraction, figuration, portraiture, oil painting, and conceptual works by some of the most exciting and critically-acclaimed artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Foregrounding an interest in the history of portraiture, many examine the multiple channels of this genre, their works echoing the plurality of these distinct approaches to abstraction, with color, a fundamental theme in art, being one of the focal points of these contemporary artists.
