Sérusier’s “Talisman”, a prophecy of color at the Musée d’Orsay

From January the 29th to April the 28th, the Musée d'Orsay is dedicating an art exhibition to Sérusier's "Talisman", a major artwork which shaped the Nabis movement. Painted in October 1888 under the direction of Gauguin, the small painting by Paul Sérusier strikes by its pure, abstract style and fascinates by its history, unveiled over the exhibition, from the shadows surrounding its creation to the light of the latest discoveries. In parallel to this major piece of art will be gathered more than 60 others paintings such as "Les Voiliers, régates" by Pierre Bonnard (around 1932), "Portrait de Ker-Xavier Roussel" more known as "Le Liseur" by Edouard Vuillard (circa 1890) or "Marine avec vache" by Paul Gauguin (1888).
