Georges Jeanclos (Paris, 1933 - Paris, 1997), The Guerry Columns, detail of the capital, France, 1994

 
Hanging

Until January 31st 2021

The Guerry Columns, a major work Georges Jeanclos (1933-1997), joined recently the mahJ’s collections thanks to an exceptional donation by the artist’s family of a full-scale terracotta study of the bronze monument erected in the hamlet of Guerry at Savigny-en-Septaine in the Cher. A poignant evocation of one of the crimes of the Shoah perpetrated on the French territory, this work constitutes a major enrichment of the mahJ’s contemporary collection.

Exhibition

Scheduled from 2 April till 23 August 2020, the exhibition has been postponed to spring 2021, due to the health crisis linked to the Coronavirus and the closure of the museum from 16 March to 6 June 2020.

The School of Paris designates the artistic scene constituted by foreign artists from all over Europe and also the Americas, Asia and Africa. This cosmopolitism was unprecedented in art history.
