“Georges Dorignac, Corps & âmes”, the new exhibition in the Montmartre Museum

The Montmartre Museum inaugurates its new exhibition dedicated to Georges Dorignac, presented for the first time in Paris.

The artist began his career with an Impressionist and Pointillist inspired work. Millet, Signac or Seurat are among his masters. He moved in 1901 to Montmartre and invested around 1910 the city of artists, La Ruche, where he is closely linked to Modigliani and Soutine. Participating in the cosmopolitan effervescence of the Paris School without belonging to it, he borrows a singular and independent way, drawing inspiration from Romanesque, oriental or medieval art.

Gathering nearly 85 works, half of which have never been presented to the general public, the exhibition unveils the variety of styles and techniques of the artist and his dazzling mastery of the feature, which make the work of Dorignac a singular ensemble of a rare aesthetic. His work will amaze you with its strength, expressiveness and singularity.

Take advantage of your visit to rediscover the permanent collections, enriched by a new acquisition : l’Ancien maquis à Montmartre (around 1919) by Maurice Utrillo.
