Masterpiece London 2017 – Opera Gallery

Opera Gallery at Masterpiece London 2017, until 5th July 0217

Claude Monet,
Le Mont Riboudet à Rouen au printemps, 1872

This gallery was founded in Paris in1994 by Gilles Dyan and now has offices around the world, including here in London. Its mixture of modern and contemporary art attracts many private collectors. This is the gallery’s debut at Masterpiece but I feel sure they will become a regular exhibitor.

The Olivier Malingue Gallery opened in October 2016 with an exhibition of works by the Korean artist Cho Yong-Ik and at present it plays host to a fascinating exhibition featuring works by Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, Sam Francis, Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Laurens, Fernand Léger, Francis Picabia and Pablo Picasso.

This is a beautifully curated show with the works displayed in a way that allows them to each be studied and experienced individually but when, as the images indicate, the show is viewed as a whole it becomes a harmonious ensemble which both stimulates and satisfies the viewer’s senses.

The theme for this very enjoyable exhibition is the journey towards Abstraction.  It is a delightful path bordered with works by artists such as Chagall, Afro, Henri Le Sidaner, Raoul Dufy, Leon Pourtau and Jean-Baptiste Armand Guillaumin as well as those mentioned above. It certainly deserves to be seen.
