Bechtler Museum of Modern Art - School of Paris


Among the many strengths of the Bechtler collection is a large holding of works by artists who practiced in Paris toward the end of World War II and the years following. Their various approaches to abstraction reveal the breadth of possibilities in both form and content in work that encourages us to question the very nature of form itself. Artists in the collection include Alberto Magnelli, Roger Bissière, Alfred Manessier, Edouard Pignon, Gustave Singier, Maria Elena Vieira da Silva, Pierre Soulages, and Nicolas de Staël.
