Past Exhibitions
Private Viewing: The Art of Marthe Orant
8.9.14 – 9.21.14
Hodge Galleries

During her life, Marthe Orant exhibited regularly in Paris exhibitions, won awards for her paintings, and received recognition from the French government and her peers through a retrospective shortly after her death. Despite these accolades, the artist and her work has been mostly lost to history.

Orant lived alone in Paris most of her adult life, studying in the studios of Édouard Vuillard and other Post-Impressionist artists, depicting bustling Parisian streets, the French countryside, and floral still-lifes.

This exhibition will reveal a glimpse into the private world of this enigmatic, reclusive artist through the FIA's extensive collection of over 50 paintings.
