To mark the gallery’s inaugural appearance at Art Monte Carlo in July, Dickinson will present a curated stand of Modern paintings, sculpture and works on paper featuring highlights by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lucio Fontana, Carmen Herrera, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, among others.
Taking place at the Grimaldi Forum, the fair brings together 50 carefully chosen galleries and celebrates Modern and Contemporary art and design. Among Dickinson’s featured paintings is Paysage avec trois personnages (1949) by Art Brut pioneer and innovator Jean Dubuffet. Executed shortly after the artist’s third and final trip to the Sahara desert, it demonstrates the influence of the Bedouin people on Dubuffet’s engagement with Outsider Art. Dickinson will also show two early works by Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera: Castilla la Vieja (Venetian red, white and black), painted in 1949, and Untitled (Havana Series #35) from 1950-51. Having arrived in Paris shortly after the end of WWII, Herrera immersed herself in the work of Postwar geometric abstractionists and Bauhaus artists, developing her own form of abstraction.
Alongside these, Dickinson will exhibit a diverse selection of works on paper, with examples by Picasso, Klee, Condo, and others.
Once again Dickinson’s stand will be designed in collaboration with Axel Clissen of Socle Studios.
