Henri Cartier-Bresson | Museo dell’Ara Pacis | Art in Rome

curated by Clément Chéroux

26 Sep 2014 – 25 Jan 2015

This large exposition is a production of the Pompidou Centre of Paris. On the ten-year anniversary of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s death.

Henri Cartier-Bresson
(1908 – 2004) is one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century.

From Surrealism to the Cold War, from the Spanish Civil War to the Second World War and Decolonization, Cartier-Bresson was one of the greatest chronicles of our history; the “eye of the century”, as he is rightly called.

ESCHER | Chiostro del Bramante | Art in Rome

“I was walking over a little bridge in the woods at Baarn,
and there it was, right before my eyes. I simply had to make a print of it!”

The ESCHER exhibition aims to emphasize the unique way in which Maurits Cornelis Escher observed nature, adopting a different viewpoint, so that beauty of geometric regularity emerges in filigree, transforming it into something magical and playful.
