Gérard Schneider (1896 - 1986)
Lyrical Abstraction emerged after the Second World War as a counter-movement against Cubism, Surrealism and Geometrical Abstraction, and represented a movement towards the possibility of painting being open to personal expression.
His works were displayed in the Louis Carré Gallery, Paris, in 1950 and from 1955-1960 at Koots Gallery, New York.
Schneider’s works can today be found in the collections of major international museums including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, MoMa in New York, the Phillips Collection in Washington, the Museum of Fine Arts of Montréal and the Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro, as well as private collections worldwide.
A catalogue raisonné of his works on canvas is currently in preparation by Laurence Schneider, the artist’s daughter, and Patrick Gilles Persin.
