Best artists from the past and contemporary masters will
meet in Paris for an exciting unique art exhibition.
On a first day of deconfinement in Paris will be opened the door of an exciting first of its kind exhibition of Old, Modern and Contemporary Masters from Vallauris and Monaco.
Four contemporary world famous ceramists from Vallauris ( Jacotte Capron, Dale Dorosh, Marc Piano and Edmond Guizol) will showcase their recent creations together with iconic ceramic works from Vallauris from private art collections by such masters as Massier family, Jean Gerbino, Picault, Portanier and others.
On a painting side three prominent contemporary artists from Monaco (Zoia Skoropadenko, Clem Chambers and Gerard Pettiti) will create on a walls of a gallery next to Pompidou Center a dialogue with old masters and their original works with the likes of Marie Laurencin, Pierre Bonnard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Emmanuel Bellini and others.
For many years Monegasque artists and artists who lived and worked in Monaco in the past were paid little attention. This exhibition wants to highlight Monaco’s artistic heritage as well as to showcase artists who are shaping the contemporary art of Monaco today.
Monaco and Vallauris have lots in common: both of them gave shelter and inspiration to big names like Picasso, Jean Marais, Kees van Dongen and others. Both of the cities have occasional rivalries such as seen in 50’s and 60’s when both cities became holiday meccas and thier ceramic producers cloned each others bestselling works to much uproar. Today often only a signature under the pots of that period indicate whether they were made in Vallauris or 40km away in Monaco. Now both poles of the art world of the French Riviera had been overshadowed by art globalization, so now is a perfect time to turn the spotlight back onto the world class art creations of Vallauris and in Monaco/
