On Paper features an international selection of artists including over forty significant pastels, gouaches, pencil drawings and collages from Impressionist, Modern and Post War Masters.
Beginning with drawings from the Impressionist era, the exhibition includes several exceptional works by Honoré Daumier, Pierre-Auguste Renoir from and Mary Cassatt.
Continuing into the twentieth century, On Paper showcases important works by Modern Masters such as Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró and Kees van Dongen, as well as Surrealist works by Paul Delvaux and Yves Tanguy. The exhibition also features several works on paper by Pop Art icons Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann, as well as three lyrical watercolors by the Abstract Expressionist artist Sam Francis.
A selection of seven drawings by Pablo Picasso ranging in date from 1905 to 1972, traces Picassos career as a master draftsman. Picassos extraordinary 1932 work on paper titled Le joueur de clarinette is inspired by Picassos young mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter and is an exhibition highlight. Picassos association with Marie-Thérèse began in 1927 when she was still a teenager living with her mother. Many years later she told Life magazine, "I was seventeen years old. I was an innocent young girl. I knew nothingneither of life or of Picasso. Nothing. I had gone to do some shopping at the Galeries Lafayette, and Picasso saw me leaving the Metro. He simply took me by the arm and said: I am Picasso! You and I are going to do great things together.
In addition to their On Paper exhibition, Hammer Galleries will have a selection of major oil paintings by Picasso, Chagall, Legér and Miró on display as well as mobiles by Alexander Calder and sculpture by Jean Dubuffet.
The exhibition is accompanied by an eighty page color catalogue.
