On her death in 2016, Shirley Jaffe, the American painter, left a very rich body of abstract art, a significant ensemble of which was donated to the French State and received by the National Museum of Modern Art in 2019. This original exhibition shows how the artist had to abandon gesture in order to bring ever increasing tension to her artistic experience. The chronological presentation periodically orchestrates face-to-face arrangements of works from different periods. Precious studio notes made by the artist for each of her pictures are presented in showcases with archive material from her studio.
