At the invitation of Frédéric Paul, nine artists from both sides of the Atlantic cast an eye on the work of American artist Shirley Jaffe (1923–2016). A French resident since 1949, Jaffe belongs to the second generation of abstract expressionists. A stay in Berlin in the early 1960s marked her move away from gestural painting. From then on, her work invested a rich repertoire of colored abstract forms, fueled by the visual complexity of the urban.
