Les Indiennes, 1990, Gerard Garouste
Les Indiennes, 1990, Installation view, Santa Monica Museum of Art

Garouste’s large-scale acrylic paintings were created on panels of linen that recalled the textile materials used beginning in the Middle Ages and known in seventeenth and eighteenth-century Europe as ”indiennes.” The exhibition also featured a selection of the artist’s bronze sculptures and smaller works in watercolor. Curated by Marie Claude-Beaud, founder and Director of the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, Les Indiennes was the first one-person show of Garouste’s work on the West Coast.
