”Cahiers d’Art has always uniquely combined publishing and exhibitions. The best artists come together to make the Revue and exquisite books with unparalleled artistic freedom. The publication is launched during an exhibition at the gallery, and original limited editions are created by the artists. We all witness art history in the making.”

NEW PUBLICATION “Kandinsky. Formes noires sur blanc”

Presenting the creative evolution of Vassily Kandinsky through the lens of his relationship with Cahiers d’Art.

It retraces the various publications edited by Christian Zervos including the monographs dedicated to Paul Klee and Kandinsky in 1929 and 1930 respectively, a fitting reminder of the strong friendship that tied the two Bauhaus masters.

This publication also aims to underline how, under the patronage of Zervos, Kandinsky enjoyed great exposure through various exhibitions at the Cahiers d’Art gallery rue du Dragon and the Jeu de Paume museum during the 1930s and at the Palais des Papes in 1947.

Edited by Caroline Fournillon-Courant, director of the musée Zervos with from contributions Sophie Bernard, Guitemie Maldonado, and Christian Derouet.

Matisse & Cahiers d’Art

It is our immense pleasure to announce that an exhibition curated by Cécile Debray and Claudine Grammont focusing on Henri Matisse’s ‘special relationship’ with Cahiers d’Art during the 1930s will open at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris in March.Coinciding with Matisse’s self-imposed withdrawal from the art world during the interwar period, La Revue Cahiers d’Art became the artist’s main outlet for sharing his creative reflection and ongoing artistic production.

In fact, La Revue, was newly published in 1926 by Christian Zervos and the avant-garde art journal would go on to regularly feature articles and reproductions of Matisse’s artworks shining a light on his ideation and igniting intense debates about the artist’s formal radical modernist approach.
