Event Description

The Walsh Gallery presents "Maurice Brianchon and Marguerite Louppe: Mirrors of Midcentury French Culture." The exhibition brings together the paintings of two French Modernists, a husband and wife team who were active in the art scene from the 1920's through the 1970's. Brianchon was an influential and well-known French painter who worked until his death in 1979, while Louppe though under-recognized, was no less accomplished as a painter. The exhibition is co-curated by David Hirsch, the great nephew of the artists, and William Corwin, a New York-based curator, sculptor, and writer. The archival materials in the exhibition come from Mr. Hirsch's private collection and these materials will allow for a multifaceted and intellectually rigorous approach to understanding the impact and cultural significance of Louppe and Brianchon's respective oeuvres.
