Vanaf 14 juni t/m 21 september is een grote serie (23 stuks) tekeningen van Paul Noble te zien in Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

"Bezoekers kunnen zich in de zomer van 2014 verwonderen over de gebeurtenissen in deze fantasievolle wereld. Paul Noble (1963, Groot-Brittannië) werkt sinds 1996 aan het project. In de expositie worden alle van hem bekende grote werken (soms wel 7x5 meter per stuk) samengebracht. Deze serie is nog nooit bijeen getoond en verspreid geraakt over verzamelingen en musea over de gehele wereld. De serie wordt getoond ‘minus twee’, in verband met de projecten waaraan Paul Noble ook na de tentoonstelling in 2014 nog verder zal werken. In 2004 en 2005 kocht Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen twee werken van de kunstenaar. In die jaren is de afspraak gemaakt om het project tegen de tijd dat het zijn voltooiing nadert, al is het de vraag of het ooit afkomt, in de 1500 vierkante meter grote Bodonzaal van Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen te tonen."

Ernesto Neto

Ernesto Neto's studio, Rio de Janeiro.

In his studio, in an atmospherically rundown area of the old centre of Rio de Janeiro, large pod-like objects hang from the ceiling or sit on the workshop floor. One resembles an igloo in an orange net. The place is full of his assistants (mainly women) sewing.

Chris Berens in his new studio in Amsterdam.

"The studio is in an old house in the very center of Amsterdam, and is filled up with a wide selection of memorabilia, souvenirs, random objects, from old books, photographs, religious figures, vintage furniture, and medicinal glassware, to big AT-ATs in the windows. Most of the walls of the studio, especially around the isle in the middle of it, are covered with images and parts of images from his previous pieces. He likes to have those scattered around like that, because sometimes he can just add them to a new piece he’s working on, or even start a whole new piece by using an image from one of his previous works."

gemengde technieken, 20 x 20 cm.

"Boating is the leisurely activity of travelling by boat, or the recreational use of a boat whether powerboats, sailboats, or man-powered vessels (such as rowing and paddle boats), focused on the travel itself, as well as sports activities, such as fishing or waterskiing. It is a popular activity, and there are millions of boaters worldwide."

Uit een serie van zes. De hele serie (en meer)is te zien op mijn website of facebookpagina.

"This last canvas shows the painter’s studio at number 11, still an artist’s studio today. The chimney in the back belonged to the Institut Pasteur whose buildings adjoin those of the Cité. The Institut Pasteur is still located next to the Cité but the chimney was demolished.

Number 11 has not changed much since the 1910s, as the following shot taken in October 2013 attests."

"Les ateliers de la cité Falguière" heb ik eerder geplaatst in de post van 16 januari 2013. Toen onder een andere titel, andere datering en met verschil in kleur. Welke van beide de juiste weergave is kan ik niet achterhalen. (hk)

La Cité Falguière

La Cité Falguière, this is a shot from the end of the Cité, showing the only remaining structures, numbers 9 and 11.

"The Cité Falguière is a cul-de-sac located in Paris’ 15th arrondissement, near Montparnasse.

It was constructed during the late 19th century as an initiative of the sculptor Jules-Ernest Bouillot, praticien for sculptor and painter Alexandre Falguière. Bouillot had the idea of building low-cost studios that could be rented to artists with little means. To this intent, in the 1860s he purchases a land at Chemin des Fourneaux and in the 1870s the first artists’ studios are built. The ateliers are set-up in a cul-de-sac separated from the Rue (previously Chemin) des Fourneaux by a wooden fence. The cul-de-sac is named Impasse Frémin after the first owner of the studios, Mrs. Frémin. A few years later, the street changes its name to Cité des Fourneaux. In 1901, Rue des Fourneaux takes its current name, Rue Falguière, and the cul-de-sac becomes Cité Falguière.

Located between the famous artists’ residence La Ruche and the increasingly vibrant area of Montparnasse, Cité Falguière served in the early years of the 20th century as work and/or living place to several modern artists, of which Amedeo Modigliani, Chaïm Soutine, Tsuguharu Foujita, Constantin Brancusi, and Paul Gauguin are examples.

In general, virtually penniless painters, sculptors, and writers came from around the world to thrive in the creative atmosphere of the Montparnasse neighborhood and for the cheap rent at artists’ residences such as La Ruche and Cité Falguière. Living without running water, in damp, unheated studios, seldom free of rats, many sold their works for a few francs just to buy food. Writer and filmmaker Jean Cocteau once said that “poverty was a luxury in Montparnasse”. First promoted by art dealers such as Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, today works by those artists sell for millions of euros.

Urban renewal of the street began in the 1960s and artists’ studios were destroyed in order to give place to residential buildings. Of the original structures, only numbers 9 and 11 remain standing today. Both buildings continue to house artists’ studios.
