Jean-Paul Riopelle

QUEBEC CITY

The Musée National des Beaux Arts du Québec will be running Mitchell/Riopelle: Nothing In Moderation, from October 12th, 2017 to January 7th, 2018. Both  successful cutting edge artists, Quebecois Jean-Paul Riopelle and American Joan Mitchell met and  fell in love in 1955 and separated in 1979. Mitchell and Riopelle lived together in Paris and then in Vetheuil in the Seine Valley for almost 25 years. During that time they shared a workshop and developed a unique way of working.

Their romantic relationship shaped they way they painted and helped form a broad dialogue based on abstraction. The exhibition contains some 60, mostly  large scale works.
