    Timed to coincide with Musée d’Art Moderne’s Lucio Fontana retrospective (until August 24), Tornabuoni Art is showing over twenty works by the Italian artist, including a 1962 perforated canvas that had long been considered lost. A nine-minute film showing Fontana at work on this rediscovered masterpiece is also on view.

    Focusing on the late French conceptualist’s large-scale works on paper, Michel Parmentier’s current exhibition features four drawings and one painting from the late 1980s and early ’90s. The drawings, which stretch from the gallery floor to ceiling, are made on delicate tracing paper that the artist systematically folded and, in some sections, coated with graphite or chalk.

    The first French museum retrospective dedicated to Robert Mapplethorpe in more than twenty years highlights the American photographer’s sculptural side. In addition to his well-known nudes, flowers, and portraits, the exhibition features less frequently exhibited photographs of bronze and marble sculptures as well as a selection of his own three-dimensional works. (Across the Seine, at the Musée Rodin, Mapplethorpe’s photographs are juxtaposed with plaster and bronze works by the nineteenth-century French sculptor; through September 21.)

    Complementing the Robert Mapplethorpe retrospective at the Grand Palais, the Musée Rodin juxtaposes more than one hundred works by the twentieth-century American photographer with plaster and bronze sculptures by the nineteenth-century French master. Striking comparisons abound between the two artists’ appreciation of the human form.
