IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

MUSEUM

A dynamic acquisition policy
he Museum contains around 10,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, installations and videos. The historical
part of the collection comes mainly from the founding bequest made to the museum by Dr Maurice Girardin in 1953: more than 500 works, which notably included several Fauvist and Cubist paintings. In the Sixties and Seventies, the museum bought a number of works from Paris Salons, before deciding in the late Eighties to focus on French and European art. Acquisitions of modern works included a

To see
In the permanent collections (free access): New major acquisitions: "Composition", 1911 by Otto Freundlich, and a collection of works by Miklos Bokor. Coming soon: "David Altmejd, Flux", from 10 October to 1 February 2015. "Sonia Delaunay, les couleurs de l’abstraction", from 17 October to 22 February 2015. Acquisition-related exhibitions starting in 2015: Henry Darger and le Train fantôme by Sturtevant.

number of rediscoveries (Picabia) and masterpieces of modernism: Matisse's "La Danse inachevée" which entered the Museum in 1993, joined another version acquired by the City in 1937. Today, the museum is keen to consolidate its existing major monographic collections, like those of Bernard Buffet, Jean Fautrier and Eugène Leroy. In 2013, it bought an exceptional work from Jean Fautrier's first period, swelling a collection that already contained around fifty dating from the Twenties to the Sixties. This approach also applies to contemporary artists. The museum is faithful to various figures, and in 2014 added the most recent part of Douglas Gordon's immense work “Pretty much every film and video work from about 1992 until now”, already present in the collections.

Beyond the principles of modernism
Although the great figures in modernism are now beyond the reach of museums because of their price and sometimes their rarity in the art market, with a few exceptions (see inset on Freundlich), many artists are still financially accessible, including some of the best.
