Experiencing André Evard
From Art Nouveau to Classical Modernism
André Evard was granted a long life with around 70 creative years and a large part of the artist's works are in the collection of the Kunsthalle Messmer. With a large number of sketches, watercolours and oil paintings, the exhibition presents an inquisitive and self-determined artistic personality who absorbed the important currents of the 20th century. His early work, influenced by Art Nouveau and Pointillism, was followed by his involvement with Cubism, Expressionism and Constructivism. Evard experimented with forms, colours and proportions in a contemporary manner and juxtaposed the clarity and structure of his geometrically abstract art with a no less impressive representational work.
