Antoni Clavé (Barcelona, Spain, 1913 – Saint-Tropez, France, 2005) is an artist whose work provides one of the most successful and original examples of how to bridge the divide between figuration and abstraction. He returns to Venice, a city that already saw the reaffirmation and consecration of his international success in 1984 with the dedication of the entire Spanish pavilion to his work. This year, again on the occasion of the Venice Biennale, the artist will be the subject of an important exhibition at the prestigious Palazzo Franchetti.
Organized by ACP – Art Capital Partners, together with the Antoni Clavé Archives, the show - curated by Aude Hendgen, art historian and head of the Antoni Clavé Archives and Sitor Senghor, an independent curator - consists of about fifty works; paintings and sculptures, including large formats, that explore the theme of the Warrior, one of the artist’s most important recurring subjects. In its understanding of the clear influence of the imagery of statuary and African masks, the exhibition will then be hosted from 23 March to 27 May 2023 at the Donwahi Foundation in Abidjan.
