Pierre SoulagesExhibition

Pierre Soulages

Pierre Soulages includes fourteen recent paintings from the artist’s ongoing Outrenoir series—metaphysically potent canvases with slashing black architectonics—alongside seminal works created in the 1950s and 60s, all on loan from major museums and important private collections.
