Picasso. Sculptures

Add to Google Calendar The upcoming exhibit “Picasso. Sculptures,” which will show at Musée national Picasso-Paris from March 8th to September 18 2016, aims to examine an understudied aspect of Picasso’s sculptural works. This aspect is the diversity of dimensions of the artist’s sculptural work constructed through his series and variations, cast iron creations, prints, and photographic enlargements, realized in a selection of his original sculptures. The exhibition attempts to reunite notable series from the work of Picasso like the Verres d’absinthe (1914) series or the original group of wood Baigneurs (1956). These series of sculpture will be presented with the cast iron creations already at Musée national Picasso-Paris. However, the exhibition will provide a new look at these cast iron creations by systematically presenting them with their “double” or “variants.” A catalogue will accompany the exhibition, following the circulation of the sculptures by their reproduction, their exhibitions or photographs, press, or art reviews. March 8 – September 18, 2016

A Swede in Paris in the 18th century - The Tessin Collection

Add to Google Calendar Although not officially bearing the title, Count Carl Gustaf Tessin acted as Swedish ambassador in Paris from 1739 to 1741. A passionate collector of paintings and drawings during those three years, he became a friend of Pierre-Jean Mariette and acquired works at the remarkable Crozat sale in 1741. Heavily in debt on his return to Sweden, he was obliged to sell part of his collection of paintings to King Frederick I, who gave them to Queen Louisa Ulrika. In 1750 the count also had to part with his collection of drawings, which was acquired by Crown Prince Adolf Frederick. Organized in tandem with the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, now home to the greater part of Tessin’s collection, the exhibition takes a combined chronological and thematic approach to his modus operandi. In doing so, it also provides an insight into the art market and Parisian taste in the mid-18th century. http://www.louvre.fr/en/expositions/swede-paris-18th-centurythe-tessin-collection From October 20, 2016 to January 16, 2017 Location Rotonde Sully Admission €15 (permanent collections + exhibitions) Opening hours Every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., except Tuesday.

Vermeer & the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration & Rivalry

Add to Google Calendar The National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin is organising a landmark exhibition, Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry, in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington. The exhibition will explore the fascinating network of relationships between Johannes Vermeer and Dutch genre painters of the period 1650–1675. Dutch genre paintings of the period 1650–1675 rank among the pinnacles of Western European art. While Johannes Vermeer is currently the most renowned painter of such scenes, the Delft master was only one of many artists of the period who excelled in capturing everyday surroundings in exquisite detail. Other major genre painters included Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu and Frans van Mieris. These artists frequently drew inspiration from each other’s paintings and then tried to surpass each other in verisimilitude, technical prowess and aesthetic appeal. This vibrant artistic rivalry contributed to the exceptionally high quality of their combined oeuvre. Vermeer’s subjects, compositions and figure types owe much to works by artists from other Dutch cities. For example, his depictions of a young woman reading a letter in a moment of quiet contemplation derives from the work of Ter Borch, the Deventer artist whose pictorial innovations and psychological insights had a profound impact on his contemporaries. Vermeer also freely borrowed from artists from Dordrecht, Leiden and Amsterdam. In turn, genre painters from outside Delft adopted stylistic and thematic elements from his work to elevate their own compositions. Thus, rather than presenting Vermeer as an enigmatic artist working in isolation, the aim of this exhibition is to highlight his relationships with his contemporaries. This exhibition invites visitors to take on the role of seventeenth-century art lovers and compare small groups of paintings that reflect the cross-currents of inspiration. Visitors will also be able to observe that artists had individual ways of inserting, changing and disguising their borrowings. http://www.nationalgallery.ie/en/Exhibitions/Upcoming/Vermeer.aspx Venues & Dates 20 February - 22 May 2017 Musée du Louvre, Paris 17 June - 17 September 2017 National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin 22 October 2017 - 21 January 2018 National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
