Henri Le Sidaner – Henri Martin
The Petit Palais in Geneva, Switzerland, owns a rich collection of modern French paintings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The founder, businessman Oscar Ghez, was an avid art collector, and the Petit Palais began in 1968 when he first exhibited and opened the collection to the public in an elegant mansion. The Petit Palais has been closed since the death of Mr. Ghez, but now an exhibition composed of only works from the collection will be held for the first time in 30 years in Japan. This exhibition will introduce the flow of modern French painting from Impressionism to Neo-Impressionism, Les Nabis, Fauvism, Cubism, and École de Paris (School of Paris), with a substantial lineup of 65 oil paintings by 38 artists.
