With a comprehensive retrospective, the Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin honours the french artist Pierre Soulages—one of the world’s most significant abstract painters of the last decades. The exhibition shows more than 70 works from all creative periods in chronological order. Apart from 1940s charcoal drawings, there are works in nut mordant, rare objects from tar as well as pieces from his Outrenoir phase. After the exhibition was shown in altered form at the Centre Pompidou Paris on the occasion of his 90th birthday, a circle has now been closed for Soulages in Berlin. He also started his international career in Germany in 1948.
