Robert Combas' 'Greatest Hits' plays in Lyon

Text size Aa Aa

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon is holding the first ever retrospective of French painter Robert Combas, known for his wild, hectic often turbulent works.

Combas is widely recognised as one of the founders of the Figuration Libre movement, a French artistic trend that began in the 1980s and is the equivalent of Bad Painting or Neo-Expressionism in America.

Combas is not only a painter, he is a musician too. The soundtracks playing at the museum were chosen by him from his collection of 10,000 plus records.
