Gerard Fromanger

From 17th February to 16th May 2016, the Pompidou Centre is host to a new retrospective exhibition for the painter Gerard Fromanger. The exhibition brings together around fifty works covering the period 1964 – 2015. It is not chronologically presented but aims to demonstrate in the course of the show, the artist’s two main preoccupations: his passion for the figurative and his concerns about the world and politics. His works are very colourful and deceptively joyful. Pompidou Centre, Place Georges-Pompidou, 75004 Paris

From 5th March 2016 to 3rd July 2016, the Victoria and Albert Museum is host to an exhibition Botticelli Reimagined which juxtaposes the works of Botticelli with those they later inspired, from 19th century onwards.

New York

Mystery and Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellows Folk Art from the Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection

The American Folk Art Museum hosts an exhibition focused on masonic symbols found in the Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection, until 8th May 2016. The works presented show the brotherhood of masonic lodges’ use of symbols which, surrounded by mystery, have always fascinated outsiders. If some masonic symbols are well known, such as the pyramid and the compasses, others have always been more obscure. The exhibition aims to trace the links and influences connecting the different lodges down the ages and the way this is represented in their iconography. American Folk Art Museum 2 Lincoln Square, New York, NY 10023

Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty

On display are over 180 works – engravings, paintings, drawings and sculptures which follow the experimentation and mix of techniques made by Degas in his search for particular effects and innovations. MoMA 11 West 53 Street, New York, NY 10019
