More than an exhibition, the Center Pompidou* offers a journey into Gérard Garouste's subconscious.

The Parisian institution has brought together some 120 creations by the artist, both ambitious and intimate, over the course of a journey giving a good overview of his talent.

The iconographic richness immediately charms, like the superb figurative illustrations of

The Old Testament

or

The Divine Comedy

.

The designer once again brilliantly reveals his singular interpretation of other great literary classics, such as

Gargantua

and

Pinocchio

.

confides Gérard Garouste to

Figaro Magazine

.

Don't miss this retrospective where a dreamlike and abundant pictorial language flourishes.

*

"Gérard Garouste"

, Paris 4th, until January 2, 2023.
