Harmonic Fascination: The Art of Max Papart
Max Papart, born in France in 1911, was a diverse artist with a clear vision. After learning classical artistic practices, he determined that they were not for him, adopting a more abstract, surrealist style. Papart moved to New Orleans in 1979 after multiple visits to the United States, and his new location continued to influence his work. His prints and paintings are filled with color and symbolism. This exhibition will look into Papart’s artistic development, from his classical drawing through his paintings, prints, and his exploration of a few other mediums.
