Cor Dekkinga and the CoBrA movement - and the CoBrA movement
Jazz enthusiast Cor DekkingaDekkinga is known first and foremost as a photographer. He made the trip to Paris and back many times from 1951 onwards to pay visits to the Dutch artists living in the French capital, in particular sculptress Lotti van der Gaag. He thus tried to capture the happy, festive atmosphere of the Rue Santeuil studios occupied by a large number of CoBrA artists, even though the movement had just disbanded.

The Maurice Jardot Donation - Guest collection
In the context of our “Spend your Summer at the LaM” programme, the Théma section and the modern art galleries host the collection of the Museum of Modern Art of Belfort, the Maurice Jardot Donation. The history of this first “guest collection” is closely linked to the modern art collection of the LaM. Their common denominator is the gallery of the celebrated dealer and discoverer of Cubism, Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler.
