Gérard Sendrey: Constantly Inconstant presents a retrospective of drawings and paintings by Gérard Sendrey (French, born 1928), one of Europe's most widely revered artistes singuleur. As a young man, Monsieur Sendrey studied law and then became manager of Begles, France. He was about 40 before he first started painting, and reached about 50 when he had his first show in a small Bordeaux gallery. Sendrey's oeuvre is one that shows vast changes in his works' manners and concerns appearing to have reinvented himself as an artist every year or so. Today, Sendrey's work is to be found in just about every important collection of outsider art, among them the Milwaukee Art Museum. The Dean Jensen Gallery has represented Sendrey's work for nearly a quarter century. This retrospective will include examples of his work from different periods during that time.
