Hans Hartung

From 25 October, the historic  Mazzoleni gallery in  piazza  Solferino,  Turin,  will host Hans  Hartung, a  retrospective dedicated to the key artist of European Art Informel, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of his death.

The exhibition covers most  of Hartung’s career,  with paintings and drawings illustrating the results of the research he conducted between the 1950s and the late 1980s.  It is part of a larger project  that also includes Hans Hartung and Art Informel, a companion exhibition running at the Mazzoleni London  gallery from 1  October 2019 to 18  January 2020. The  gallery  has  long  been interested  in Hartung, ever since  presenting his works in Turin for  the first time in 2004. Now,  this  project  investigates  the origins  of Hartung’s  practice  and  his  relationship  with  other  artists  who  were working in Paris the 1950s and 1960s, including Serge Poliakoff, Jean-Paul Riopelle, and Georges Mathieu.
