“From Zurbarán to Rothko”

Alicia Koplowitz – a well renowned businesswoman and philanthropist from Madrid, Spain – has created a wonderfully aesthetic art collection throughout her life reflecting her own personal taste, by bringing together important masterpieces from some of the world’s greatest artists and now she wants to share it with the audience.


In 2006, she was decorated with the distinction of Knight within Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur in recognition of her professional career, her social work and her activities in France, and thus it seems adequate she displays her entire collection for the first time in the city of Paris, the global reference for art creation and culture.

The collection is made up of Old and Modern Masters, which – amongst them – seem to foster dialogue amongst the works of art but also across the centuries: antique sculptures and paintings by Zurbarán, Pantoja de la Cruz, Tiepolo, Canaletto, Guardi and Goya can be seen alongside paintings and drawings by Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso, Van Dongen, de Kooning, Modigliani, Schiele, de Staël, Freud, Rothko and Barceló, as well as sculptures by Giacometti, Bourgeois and Richter.

This exhibition, right in the centre Paris, to be seen in the beautiful (and most romantic) architectural setting by Henri Parent, now Musée Jacquemart-André, was the residence of another remarkable woman Nélie Jacquemart, well-known painter and art collector, who together with her husband devoted their fortune to build an extraordinary collection, pays tribute to one of the most prolific but low-profile collectors of our time.

The fifty-three works invite us to experience the emotion of the collection. Beyond the diversity of technique, épochs and styles, the works in the Alicia Koplowitz Collection all share the same artistic sensibility. They bear witness to a subtle and refined taste, with a certain penchant for female portraits. Whether she is the model or artist, the creator shaping the material or the inspiring muse; woman is at the heart of the majority of these artworks, all of which have been selected by Alicia Koplowitz herself.
