The exhibition at Lévy Gorvy is set into two parts, the first highlights artworks by Impressionist masters such as Van Gogh while the second will display works by contemporary artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Zao Wou-Ki

Lévy Gorvy's latest exhibition, Eternal Seasons, opens on March 25 at the gallery's space in Hong Kong. The artworks in the exhibition span 150 years of art history from Impressionism to the present day. The show will feature a selection of masterpieces depicting the four seasons, capturing the cyclical nature of life and offering insight into how artists perceive and depict the ever-changing landscape.

The exhibition will be shown as two consecutive presentations: the first highlights the works by Impressionist masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Odilon Redon, Raoul Dufy and Henri Le Sidaner—many of which are being shown in Asia for the first time.

Van Gogh's View of a Park in Paris will be the highlight of the first half of the exhibition. The artwork once belonged to the poet and art critic Albert Aurier, who wrote the first serious review of Van Gogh's work in 1890 and owned 14 paintings by the artist.

The second presentation opens on April 28 and will focus on international post-war and contemporary artists, such as Yayoi Kusama, Joan Mitchell and Zao Wou-Ki. Some of the artworks that will be on display have been created especially for the show.

Joan Mitchell's monumental canvas, 12 Hawks at 3 O'clock will be leading the second half of the exhibition. It conveys a landscape illuminated by the warmth of the afternoon sun. This artwork was first exhibited in Paris in May 1962 and was acquired by artist Sam Francis, with whom Mitchell shared a friendship and brief affair. It remained in Francis' collection until his passing in 1994.


Eternal Seasons will run from March 25–May 31, 2021 at the Lévy Gorvy gallery located at G/F, 2 Ice House Street, Hong Kong. Please note that the exhibition is presented in two parts. When the second presentation opens, artworks from the first exhibition will no longer be on display.
