AUG 30 – OCT 19, 2024


With Etienne Béothy (born 1887 in Heves, Hungary/died 1961 in Paris) and Auguste Herbin (born 1882 in Quiévy, France/died 1960 in Paris) the stage is set for two exceptional figures of the European avant-garde. The third edition of Exploring the Archive highlights the two artists who were contemporaries living and working in Paris and members of the group Abstraction-Création.

About the project:
In an ongoing research project, von Bartha examines over five decades of its rich gallery history, weaving lines and linking milestones of a lifelong passion for art and collecting. Presenting a treasure trove of insights with photographs, bibliophilic objects, letters, documents, and historical publications, accompanied by a small selection of artworks, Exploring the Archive offers surprising, exciting, and sometimes amusing insights into some of the most significant artistic positions and art movements of the 20th century.
