Aurélie Nemours “Aus Schweizer Privatsammlungen” at Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich

Aurélie Nemours – Aus Schweizer Privatsammlungen
curated by Sabine Schaschl
October 25, 2017–January 14, 2018

Museum Haus Konstruktiv is devoting a solo exhibition to French artist Aurélie Nemours (1910–2005), which presents various periods in the oeuvre of this grande dame of geometric abstract art, thanks to loaned works from Swiss private collections.

In the very male-dominated domain of constructivist art, Aurélie Nemours, alongside Sonia Delaunay and Sophie Taeuber-Arp, is one of the female artists who, according to art critic Michel Seuphor, had a determining influence on the development of abstract art in France.

It was not until after first studying art history at École du Louvre that Nemours started to train as an artist: initially in Paul Colin’s studio, and later under André Lhote and Fernand Léger. She found a consistent geometric visual language in the 1950s and kept developing it further until her death in 2005.
