23 April – 28 May, 2016

The GAM of Milan presents a great collaboration between Hermès, the Parisian luxury house, and Panthera, the global wild cat conservation organization based in New York, who have joined forces to pay homage to the extraordinary talent of the French artist and naturalist, Robert Dallet (1926 – 2006). Fierce and Fragile: Big Cats in the Art of Robert Dallet celebrates the beauty of big cats while raising awareness of their precarious existence.
The international exhibition will tour throughout Europe and Asia in 2016 – 2017 and will feature up to 60 of the artist’s paintings, drawings, and sketches illustrating the eight big cat species: tiger, lion, leopard, cheetah, cougar, jaguar, snow leopard and clouded leopard. Offering a cross-disciplinary approach that brings together art, design, and science.

 

“WE HOPE TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE PRECARIOUS EXISTENCE OF WILD CATS AND
THEIR ENVIRONMENTS ON A GLOBAL BASIS.”
– PIERRE-ALEXIS DUMAS, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF HERMÈS
