100 YEARS OF PIERRE SOULAGES
On 24 December 2019, the painter Pierre Soulages, the uncontested master of black, a colour with which he has been in dialogue for decades, will be 100 years old. The Pierre Soulages Museum in Rodez, an integral part of his work, is already paying tribute to him by exhibiting his greatest paintings on paper from 1December 2018 to 30 March 2019.
On the occasion of this centenary, a visit to Conques Abbey Church is a must. The stained glass windows at this Grand Site Occitanie were created by Pierre Soulages. It's less than 40 km away from Rodez.
Meanwhile, from January to June 2019, the Soulages Museum will be hosting an exhibition of avant-garde female artists of the 50s, including painters, sculptors and visual artists like Vieira da Silva, Anna-Eva Bergman and Sonia Delaunay.
