This exhibition, the first to be devoted to Julio GonzÃ¡lez in Paris, includes 116 works from the IVAM, that has one of the most important collections from GonzÃ¡lez. The exhibition is completed with works from the Fondation Maeght, the MusÃ©e National d'Art Moderne, the Centre Pompidou, la Galerie de France and private collections.
Julio GonzÃ¡lez (Barcelona, 1876 ? Paris, 1942) is one of the foremost sculptors of the 20th century. His not very abundant work is distributed among the major modern art museums; especially outstanding are the collections in the MusÃ©e National d'Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina SofÃa (Madrid) and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The most important collection of Julio GonzÃ¡lez's work is that of the IVAM, made up of almost 400 pieces (between sculptures, drawings, paintings and jewellery) from different purchases, but fundamentally from the donations of Carmen MartÃnez and Viviane Grimminger, the artist's heiresses. The IVAM also conserves work by Julio's brother, Joan GonzÃ¡lez (Barcelona, 1868-1908), and his daughter, Roberta GonzÃ¡lez.
The exhibition presented by the IVAM is accompanied by a catalogue which reproduces the works exhibited and includes essays by the art historicist Jean Luc Daval and Josep Salvador, curator at the IVAM.
This show is sponsored by Pernod Ricard.
