Today, the Louvre Museum opened a retrospective exhibition of the most famous living artist of France Pierre Soulages

The exhibition is timed to 100-летию artist will be held on December 11, 2019 March 9, 2020. In addition to Soulages, such an honor — retrospective at the Louvre to mark the anniversary, — in the last hundred years was awarded to only two artists: Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall

the exhibition, designed to show the development and transformation of the theme of black color in the artist's work, includes 20 works created in the period from 1946 to 2019. The artist's works, presented in chronological order, demonstrate how the idea of extreme minimalism and lack of colour gives way to the artist's desire to maximize the variety of texture and structure of paint surfaces.

"the different textures: smooth, fibrous, calm, tense or anxious, glossy or matte, giving rise to new shades of black. Even the light reflected from glossy surfaces, becomes an integral part of the job" — Soulages explains in the exhibition catalogue.

in Addition to the honor of being the most famous of contemporary French artists, Pierre Soulages is also one of the most expensive living artist: his personal record — $10.6 million for the work Peinture 186 × 143 cm, 23 décembre 1959 (the name this painting in honor of the day 40-летия of the artist), sold in November last year at auction Christie's Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale. With this price the hammer pattern is a 22-е place in the list of the most expensive works sold at public auction sites. Keep up the speed the artist's market in the current year: at the end of November 2019 the total annual revenue for the work of Soulages $25.4 million — this is the highest figure for the artist over 99. And, given the age and the unwritten laws of the art-рынка regarding living and other artists, the price of his work in the near future will only grow. So now while the market is not peaked, it's time to look at the proposals for the auction houses. For example, lithography 1979 for Contemporary Art Online Paris auction house Sotheby's.
