Since the retrospective at the National Museum of Modern Art in 1970, no major exhibition has been dedicated to Serge Poliakoff, though a major artist of the Parisian art scene from 1950-1960. More than eighty paintings created between 1946 and 1969 show the work of a painter who has emerged in the post-war debates around abstraction.
Supported both by the greatest historians of abstract art (Michel Ragon, Dora Vallier, Gerard Durozoi), he was also able to awaken via his dealers, the interest of many private collectors. The course of the exhibition is conceived as a journey organised into several sequences around key works: from his years of research and the period after the war, until his place at the forefront of abstract painting.
