Caravaggio and the Painters of the North
From 21 June to 18 September 2016
To commemorate the centenary of Matta’s birth, in 2011 the Museum presented a special installation of the 5 canvases that constitute the cycle L’Honni aveuglant (The dazzling Outcast), with the aim of offering the first recreation of the way it was shown in Paris in 1966. As a continuation of that project, this fourth issue of Open Window includes two texts that analyse Matta’s highly innovative and revolutionary concept of space. This issue also includes an article on the Commedia dell’Arte in the work of the French Rococo painter Watteau.
