The Centre Pompidou is devoting an exhibition to the remarkable works on paper generously donated by Florence and Daniel Guerlain in January 2012.
The two collectors built up a collection of over 1,200 drawings over a period of fifteen years, with works by over 200 artists from thirty-odd different countries. The entry of this outstanding and wide-ranging collection into the Centre Pompidou's graphic arts department has profoundly changed its profile, and is a historical addition as well as being a reference in terms of today's art on paper.
The collection comes as a highly opportune enrichment to the department's current collection, as it contains works by artists hitherto unrepresented, like Javier Perez, Vidya Gasteldon, Gert and Uwe Tobias, Richard Prince and Cameron Jamie – or adds further to collections already present. In the newly laid-out graphic arts gallery and museum gallery, exceptionally joined together for the occasion, this new exhibition brings together some three hundred drawings chosen from the entire donation.
