“This winter Landerneau will present an exceptional event exhibition in France! The result of a unique collaboration between two major Canadian cultural institutions, the work of these two artists, Joan Mitchell and Jean‑Paul Riopelle, will be to discover or re – discover the FHEL.” Michel-Edouard Leclerc
The American painter Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) and the Canadian painter Jean-Paul Riopelle (1923-2002) fit the image of Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin, Man Ray and Lee Miller, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, of Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock, in the constellation of sentimental and artistic mythologies which is revealed the significance of a close emotional relationship between two creators, passionate and bold. For the first time, an exhibition retraces their artistic careers in terms of their relationship from their first meeting in 1955, until their separation in 1979. The emblematic and mainly large format works, fruits of their work in the particular context of this liaison, will be presented in Landerneau.
