Chiara Parisi, director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz

One of the greatest exponents of automatic drawing and sand pictures, André Masson (1896–1987) was actively involved in, and acutely aware of, the upheavals of his century, both historical and intellectual. He had fruitful relationships with the artists and thinkers of his time, and his drawings and paintings influenced the beginnings of American Abstract Expressionism, forming the best-known part of an oeuvre whose overall power is not yet fully appreciated.

Taking a chronological and thematic approach, the exhibition covers his work from the 1920s and the Automatism revolution, through his anti-fascist commitments, his reading of Freud and his American exile, to his undoubtedly seminal role in the American Expressionists of the 1950s.
