Featuring around 230 artworks and 70 documents and archives, the exhibition at Centre Pompidou begins with his early days of painting in the 1890s and spans through the end of his practice. Including insight from authors like Clement Greenberg, Georges Duthuit, and the artist himself, the exhibition includes works like the experimental 1914 painting White and Pink Head, pieces from his fauvist period, and work like his stained glass windows and ceramics.
