Known for her use of simple, sinuous lines to explore eroticism and female sexuality, Huguette Caland began to receive renewed recognition from the international art world in recent years. Her work featured prominently in the 2012 exhibition, Modernités Plurielles 1905-1970 at the Centre Pompidou and Twenty-three works, including three kaftans displayed on enigmatic mannequins designed by the artist, were shown in the Arsenal’s Dionysian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale. The artist had her first British solo museum exhibition at Tate St. Ives in 2019.
