Suzanne Valadon – un monde à soi

Suzanne Valadon – un monde à soi :   

The exhibition

In this exhibition, the Musée d'arts de Nantes takes a fresh look at the extraordinary career of Suzanne Valadon, from her beginnings as a model to her apogee as an artist in avant-garde Montmartre.

A self-taught artist with an extraordinary destiny, Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938) left a fascinating, transgressive and uncompromising body of work.
An ardent defender of the need to paint reality, she broke with the traditional idealization of the body. She paints intimate scenes of everyday life with a strong outline and an incredibly modern chromatic richness.
Owning the masterpiece Les Baigneuses (1923), acquired in 1957 thanks to the Friends of the Museum, the Musée d'arts de Nantes is once again honouring this self-taught artist, whose work was little recognized in art history after her death.
