MUSÉE NATIONAL D'ART MODERNE – CENTRE POMPIDOU
Petit Futé's opinion on MUSÉE NATIONAL D'ART MODERNE – CENTRE POMPIDOU
The museum is located on the 4th and 5th floor of the Pompidou Centre. It has a collection of 60,000 works which make up the first European funding and the second in the world after the MoMA in New York. From this fund, 1,500 to 2,000 works are exhibited in rotation. The presentation is done in a chronological order and allows you to better understand the evolution of plastic art during the last hundred years. You will find works dating from 1905 to 1960 on the 5th floor of the centre and on the 4th floor, you will find contemporary artwork. From these floors, you can access the halls where major exhibitions are offered regularly on a theme related to the history of a creator's modern artwork. Finally, three terraces extend these spaces with imposing sculptures of Henry Laurens, Joan Miro and Alexander Calder. The tour of the museum is almost maddening as you can see masterpieces of painters and sculptors who have changed our view of the world. All major trends and movements are represented: Fauvism (Derain, Matisse, Vlaminck, Dufy, Van Dongen, Rouault, etc...), Cubism (Braque, Picasso, Léger, Gris, Gleizes, etc...), Dadaism and Surrealism (Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, Magritte, Dali, etc...), Futurism (Boccioni, Russolo, Magnelli, etc...), Expressionism (Kirchner, Kokoschka, Dix, etc...), the School of Paris (Chagall, Modigliani, Soutine, etc...), the different patterns of abstract art (Kandinsky, Mondrian, Malevich, Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, Hartung, Soulages, Zao Wou Ki, etc...), brut or informal art (Fautrier, Dubuffet, Tapies, Chaissac, etc...), New Realism (Arman, Klein, Tinguely de Saint-Phalle, Caesar, etc...), Pop Art (Warhol, Rauschenberg, Johns, etc...), Fluxus (Beuys Paik, Filliou, Ben, etc...), Minimalism (LeWitt, Serra, Stella Buren, Morellet, etc...), Arte Povera (Manzoni, Penone, Kounellis, Pistoletto, etc...), Narrative Figuration (Adami, Cueco, Erro, Fromanger, Rancillac, etc...). It is impossible to mention them all! In addition to the above mentioned artists who often went from one movement to another during their journey, it is important to mention individuals like Rousseau, Signac, Delaunay, Klee, Giacometti, Arp, Rivera, Kahlo, Bourgeois, Bacon, etc... To all these treasures can be added depicting pieces of the architecture history and design during the same period (Le Corbusier, Mallet-Stevens, Prouvé, Loewy, Paulin, Garouste & Bonetti, Starck, Nouvel, Portzamparc, etc...). Finally, note that, in front of the centre, the Atelier Brancusi is the last place of employment for the Romanian sculptor, Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). This establishment designed by Renzo Piano allows you to see the works as well as tools and personal belongings the artist, through windows from a small closed garden.
