Room 206.08 André Masson (1896-1987)

Room?s details

When André Masson left France for Spain in 1934, his reasons for doing so were largely connected with the current political situation in his country. When he returned to France in 1936, his departure was motivated in a similar way by the outbreak of the Civil War in Spain. Nevertheless, the political part of his production has been willfully overlooked both by the artist himself and by the readings that have been proposed for his work at that time, which have focused mainly on the artist’s cultural and mystical relationship with this country.
