Exhibition: In Dialogue: Look, Paint, Repeat: Variations in the Art of Pierre Daura
Four hundred miles south of Paris lies Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, a medieval settlement perched on top limestone cliffs. The village was a source of constant inspiration to many artists, including Pierre Daura and famous poet André Breton. This exhibition uses our recent acquisition of Daura’s “View of Saint-Cirq-LaPopie” to highlight how the artist depicted certain subjects over and over again.
“In Dialogue” is a series of installations in which the Georgia Museum of Art’s curators create focused, innovative conversations around a single work of art from the permanent collection. The series brings these familiar works to life by placing them in dialogue with works of art by influential peers, related sketches and studies or even objects from later periods.
