"At Basel the theme of our stand will be “Auguste Herbin and His Circle.” Herbin served as master to an entire generation of artists in the 1950s, at a time when Paris was still the worldwide capital of art. The many artists drawn to Paris notably sought to exhibit at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles, over which Herbin himself presided, and which was the logical extension of the Abstraction–Creation movement that had formed around him back on the 1930s.
Countless artists acquired their visual idiom from Herbin or were influenced by him. We will be showing several whose development was indebted to him, such as Victor Vasarely, Jean Dewasne, Edgar Pillet and Georges Folmer (who was close to all our artists and whose daughter has kindly lent us some canvases and a rare sculpture). Also represented will be Aurélie Nemours (works in gouache and oil from private collections), Véra Molnar, Jo Delahaut, and Olle Baertling, plus three fine gouaches by Geneviève Claisse, a student of Herbin who edited his catalogue raisonné."
