Posing Modernity: The Black Model from Manet and Matisse to Today

This exhibition explores the changing modes of representation of the black figure as central to the development of modern art. The models’ interactions with and influences on painters, sculptors and photographers are highlighted through archival photographs, correspondence and films. The artists featured in the exhibition depicted black subjects in a manner counter to typical representations of the period. The works included highlight the little-known, multiracial aspect of each artist’s milieu.

“The exhibition will be on view at the Wallach from October 24, 2018 to February 10, 2019, and will then be expanded at the Musée d’Orsay from March 26 to July 14, 2019.”
