The Trio — Schneider, Mathieu, Soulages presents three important lyrical abstraction artists, Gérard Schneider (1896-1986), Pierre Soulages (1919-) and Georges Mathieu (1921-2012). This exhibition presents 10 important paintings that introduce viewers to the idea that although the three artists were merged from lyrical abstraction period, their artistic form and expressiveness were unique and distinguished.

 

The origins of lyrical abstraction can be traced back to the early 1940s. At that time, the uncertainty and sense of loss engendered by WWII encouraged many artists to embrace primitive forms of emotional expression in their creative work, utilizing the purest form of intuitive consciousness to explore perception and harmony in the color combination. Indeed, through the speed of brushwork and symbols from ancient civilizations, passionate lyrical abstract lines and orderly intersecting blocks of color were used as vehicles to showcase the mindset of the artist.
