Beauford on View at the Pompidou Center - Last Days

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM
LES AMIS DE BEAUFORD DELANEY!

Just over a year ago, I reported that a magnificent Beauford Delaney abstract was placed on display as part of the Multiple Modernities 1905-1970 (also called Plural Modalities) exposition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The exhibit closes on January 26, so there are just a few more days to view it.

Artist Bob Tomlinson viewed this work soon after the exposition opened and contributed a commentary on it to the Les Amis blog. Read it here:

The abstract hangs in a short corridor (Traverse G) between Rooms 31 and 34 on the 5th floor of the museum. Because it is not displayed in a room, it can be difficult to find. But it is well worth a trip to the museum to see it. Don't delay - January will be over in the blink of an eye!

If you do visit the museum and see the painting, please share your thoughts about it by leaving a comment in the space below.
