Discover the process and techniques used to restore and ensure the durability of Simon Hantaï's art works.

To celebrate the centenary of Simon Hantaï’s birth (1922-2008), the Fondation is organising an unprecedented retrospective exhibition, in collaboration with the Hantaï family, curated by Anne Baldassari. It includes more than 130 of Simon Hantaï’s works, many of which have never before been shown, and the majority of which are large format works from 1957 to 2000.

Aurelia Chevalier, restorer of modern and contemporary art, met Simon Hantaï in 2004. In this video, the restorer explains the process and techniques used to restore and ensure the durability of her works.
