Manet and Degas, between complicity and rivalry

  • While we thought we knew everything aboutEdouard Manet (1832-1883) author of the famous "Lunch on the grass"and Edgar Degas (1934-1917) known for his small dancers of the OperaThis very rhythmic exhibition tackles a subject that was previously unknown to the general public: the relationship between two great modern painterss. As much rapprochement as disagreement ...
  • The exhibition covers the period 1860-1880. Manet is worldly. Modern, he transgresses the artistic conventions and plays with the press, while Edgar Degas has a more closed character, secret, he paints the intimate and remains close to impressionism.
  • Opposite on choices of styles, they debate bitterly, but for all that, they frequent the same intellectual circles, and cabarets, and work with the same merchants and collectors ...
  • The scenes of cabaretshorse racing is their favourite theme
  • From their deep antagonisms a rich and fertile competing artistic production is born, which will give birth to the Modernity
  • What reveals to us this beautiful Parisian exhibitionit is finally the deep attachment that Manet and Degas had towards each other, then .... Friends or enemies?

Another exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay

The Musée d'Orsay, one of the most beautiful impressionist collections in the world

  • The Museum of Orsay installed in the old Orsay station, is a very beautiful space. The architecture and the scenography of the museum alone justify its visit!
  • He presents painting and sculpture from the mid-nineteenth century to the First World War.
  • It is especially the collection of Impressionist paintings that is absolutely extraordinary.
  • Impossible to list all the artists who are exhibited there Bonnard, Cézanne, Courbet, van Gogh, le Douanier Rousseau, Manet, Monet, Morisot... to name a few.
  • It is today a museum, devoted mainly to French painting between 1860 and 1930
