The exhibition « Eternal Seasons : Part II », opened on April 28, 2021 in Hong Kong, is the second phase devoted by Lévy Gorvy Gallery to how artists perceive and portray the changing seasons and the cyclical nature of life. The first exhibition featured a group of Impressionist and post-Impressionist masterworks, from Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Edvard Munch and Pierre-Auguste Renoir to Marc Chagall, Raoul Dufy and Pablo Picasso.
This second exhibition features a selection of works by post-war and contemporary artists such as Alexander Calder, Francesco Clemente, Alex Katz, Jutta Koether, Yayoi Kusama, Michael Lau, Joan Mitchell, Lari Pittman, Ugo Rondinone, Amy Sillman, Pat Steir, Tu Hongtao, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Jonas Wood and Zao Wou-Ki.
The two works by Zao Wou-Ki summarize the entire artistic journey of the artist during his career. The 1948 oil painting created in July 1948 in Paris, shows a landscape reminiscent of his Chinese memories. The large watercolor from 2007, a fantastic explosion of colors, clearly testifies to the mastery of the artist in this technique and his total freedom at the end of his life. These two works have in common a strong taste for color which creates space.
