On the occasion of its participation in Art Basel from 13 to 16 June 2019, Applicat-Prazan presented BBB Bold | Brilliant | Big
“I have never thought that the greatness of a work of art could be measured simply by its size – but when a painting is daring (Bold!) and executed with consummate skill (Brilliant!) as well as being large (Big!), a breach in the observance of due sparingness in the use of the term “masterpiece” is perhaps permissible.” Franck Prazan
On the 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2019, Applicat-Prazan participated, for the 3rd time, in the Paris Gallery Weekend with an exceptional hanging in its Right Bank gallery at 14 avenue Matignon 75008 Paris. On this occasion, the gallery showed two masterpieces by Roger-Edgar Gillet (1924-2004), an artist defended by the great critics Michel Tapié and Charles Estienne in the 50’s, and later by Jean Pollak, director of the Ariel gallery.
Following FIAC, Applicat-Prazan presents 12 historical paintings by artists who belonged to Michel Tapié’s ‘stable’. The exhibition will subsequently be shown at the Left Bank gallery from the 27th October through to the 22nd December 2018. This remarkable art critic was amongst the very first to spot this Art-form that was called “Autre” or different and which goes from Informal art to Gutaï.
Participating in the Galleries section of Art Basel, Applicat-Prazan was also showing this year a truly out of the ordinary painting by Georges Mathieu in the Unlimited section of the fair dedicated to monumental works of art. Painted 59 years ago, this work has been shown at all the greatest exhibitions dedicated to Georges Mathieu and is indisputably, one of the Artist’s masterpieces.
Six paintings from the gallery, lent by private collectors, are on view in the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris until May 20th, 2018.
TEFAF Maastricht, Europe’s largest and most important fair dedicated to art, antiques and design, goes to New York. Patrick van Maris, CEO of TEFAF said: «Exhibitors that regularly come to our Maastricht venue, as well as institutions and private collectors had, for a while, expressed their need and wish to have an event equivalent to TEFAF in New York ». A first edition dedicated to works from Antiquity through to the 20th Century took place in October 2016. The second edition, in which Applicat-Prazan will be participating, is to be held from May 4 to 8 and will be focusing on modern and contemporary art and design at the Park Avenue Armory.

Composed of 17 paintings, this exhibition brings to light two series of his works which fascinate the gallery. “We are not the last” consists of 10 acrylic paintings on canvas executed between 1970 and 1974, and his major later works of the 1990’s, in which he reveals his inner realm, approaching his own end.
