5.Gérard Fromanger. the splendor
Berardo Collection Museum, Belém until 05/29/2022
"For Gérard, colors are people. With the same diversity, with personality, with the same light". Éric Corne's words provide the indispensable pair of lenses needed to go through the exhibition "Gérard Fromanger. O Esplendor", at Museu Coleção Berardo, the French painter's first in Portugal and the first retrospective since his death in June last year . Friend and curator, he praises the author who reflected on politics and society, who looked at the streets of Paris as an observatory of Western experiences in the 20th century.There are more than 60 paintings, organized into 26 series. In about six decades of creation, which erupted in the hot climate of the social and political movements of the 1960s, Fromanger focused on the present, without reservations or taboos. Painting, an assumed weapon whose role was questioned over the years, was the support he maintained until the end, often in technical combination with photography, master of a distorted figurativism of social realism.
