Three paintings of Mathieu at the Biennale des Antiquaires


Three paintings of Georges Mathieu are exhibited this year at the Biennale des Antiquaires at the Grand Palais in Paris:

  • Sucy (1965) at Daniel Templon’s stand, heraldic and colorful artwork, with an original structure that is typical of the orthogonal period that started the same year;
  • Machiavel I (1952) at Applicat-Prazan’s stand, painted at the Studio Paul Facchetti as well as three other paintings including the famous Hommage au Maréchal de Turenne whose creation was immortalized by a series of 24 photographs made by Paul Facchetti;
  • Tenth Avenue (1957) at Daniel Boulakia’s stand, painted by Mathieu in the basement of a hotel in New York, not in public as in Japan the same year, because his dealer Samuel Kootz considered that the speed of execution of Mathieu’s painting — revolutionary in its day — should be concealed from the public.

You have until Sunday, September 18th, to physically discover them.
