Review by Zoltan Alexander
Galerie Kamel Mennour presents on 18 April 2019 for the first time in France, “Judith and Holofernes”, an exceptional painting by Caravaggio - discovered in an attic in Toulouse in 2014 - together with Daniel Buren’s site-specific work, “Pyramidal, haut-relief – A5, travail in situ”.
Before being placed on auction on the 27th of June under the direction of Marc Labarbe, this classic masterpiece by the uncontested master of Italian Baroque - a tumultuous genius born in Milan in 1571, who died in Porto Ercole in 1610, responsible for only sixty five known works at the moment of the discovery - will be in hypnotic and completely unprecedented dialogue with the resolutely contemporary work of the French artist. born in 1938 in Boulogne-Billancourt.
This striking face-to-face, majestically lit by light designer Madjid Hakimi, will be present in the space at 6 rue du Pont de Lodi between 18 April 2019 to 04 May 2019.
