Form and colour - André Lhote and swedish cubism

from 16 September 2017 to 21 January 2018


Many Swedish artists studied under André Lhote. This exhibition is the first to focus on the extensive but unknown teacher-student relationships that began in the early 1910s between Lhote and his first Swedish students, Georg Pauli and Prince Eugen. In the ensuing five decades, Pauli and Eugen were followed by several generations of Swedish painters; some50 of these are featured in this presentation, including Siri Derkert, Olle Beartling, Philip von Schrantz and Elsa Danson Waghals. Works by Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay and other artists are also shown in the exhibition.
