I discovered a wonderful modern art museum in Charlotte NC… The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. A must see for modern art lovers! They have a wonderful collection of well known and not so well know artists. I discovered two “new to me” artists whose work I am in love with! Alfred Manessier (French 1911-1993) and Gustave Singier (Belgian 1909-1984).
There is little published on these two artists in the United States. I am told they are well known and loved all over Europe! So, I am researching and learning what I can about them.
One thing I learned at the exhibit is that the two artists lived and worked in France, were close friends, and worked with one another throughout their lifetime. Their influence on one another is evident in their artwork.
Here are some works from the exhibit by both artists. I hope they inspire you as much as they did me!
Profitez de l’art moderne!
