After 10 years of being based in the Principality of Monaco and coinciding with the 25 years Anniversary of Opera Gallery Worldwide, we are pleased to bring to you our first exhibition of the year, honouring three European masters.

These idiosyncratic, international giants, of Post-War and contemporary art, still influence today. Founding father of Art Brut,Dubuffet was able to represent life’s extremes with a dualistic brutality and sensitivity, a post WWII truth through the centre of his stylised works. Hartung’s offering is more geared towards formal abstraction, with a profoundly delicate use of line and tone evoking life’s great source of energy.Soulages, who celebrates a centenary this year, offers further restraint demonstrating a capability or invoking infinite change through his limited palette and minimal, yet expressive, composition.

We are confident that this curated selection will offer further provocative conversation on the contribution of these artistic pioneers,and provide our audience with a wonderful beginning to this meaningful year for our Monaco gallery.
