Stanley William Hayter

The exhibition Colour in Motion immerses visitors in the heart of the expressive, innovative, and dynamic world of the English painter and engraver Stanley William Hayter. Intended as a retrospective, the exhibition retraces his incredibly long career as a painter during the twentieth century, spanning the movements of surrealism, abstract expressionism, and kinetic art. Throughout his life, Hayter was an innovative artist and was involved in precursory movements, while retaining his passion for colour and line. Considered one of the greatest engravers of his century, his painted oeuvre, which is just as colossal, is still relatively unknown to the general public. This unique exhibition pays tribute to this prominent artist.
