Ingres and Delacroix. Artists' Objects

27 March 2024 10 June 2024
A tobacco jar in the shape of a fish that belonged to Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863), a gilded laurel crown awarded to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) by the citizens of Montauban to celebrate his admission to the Senate, an illuminator's inkpot in Fez-style pottery, brought back by Delacroix from his travels in Morocco in 1832, paint-daubed palettes, Ingres's famous violin......

These ordinary objects bear witness to the personal tastes and creative processes of two great artists. What do they tell us about their famous owners? How much of the man was in the artist? How much of the artist in the man? Ingres et Delacroix: Artists' Objects (27 March-10 June 2024) suggests some answers.

Organised by the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix - Établissement Public du Musée du Louvre and the Musée Ingres Bourdelle - Ville de Montauban, this exhibition will be presented in Paris from 27 March to 10 June 2024, then, in a version adapted for that locale, in Montauban from 11 July to 10 November 2024.

Paris 1874 Inventing impressionism

25 March 2024 14 July 2024
150 years ago, on April 15, 1874, the first impressionist exhibition opened in Paris. "Hungry for independence", Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morisot, Pissarro, Sisley and Cézanne finally decided to free themselves from the rules by holding their own exhibition, outside official channels: impressionism was born. To celebrate this anniversary, Musée d'Orsay is presenting some 130 works and bringing a fresh eye to...

The exhibition at Musée d'Orsay evidences the contradictions and infinite variety of contemporary creation in that spring of 1874, while highlighting the radical modernity of those young artists. "Good luck!" one critic encouraged them, "Innovations always lead to something."

This exhibition is organized by the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée de l'Orangerie and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, where it will be presented from September 8, 2024 to January 20, 2025.

A New Look at Jan Van Eyck. The Madonna of Chancellor Rolin

20 March 2024 17 June 2024
To celebrate the historic conservation work carried out on Jan van Eyck's masterpiece - the first intervention of its kind since the painting entered the museum in 1800 - the Louvre has decided to dedicate the first spotlight exhibition to be held in the Salle de la Chapelle since 2014 to Chancellor Rolin in Prayer before the Virgin and Child, also known as the Madonna of Chancellor Rolin. The layers of oxidised...

This intervention reflects the current interest in Van Eyck's oeuvre, following the conservation treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece. For almost ten years now, a number of international and cross-disciplinary exchanges have led experts to raise many new questions on the subject. The Louvre wishes to show audiences how the analyses carried out at the Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France, and the conservation work itself, have challenged our previous assumptions about the piece, long known as the Virgin of Autun.

Many aspects of this painting - less well known than it should be for such a major work of Western art - may seem difficult to understand. For this reason, the exhibition will be built around a series of questions designed to draw the viewer in: for what purposes(s) did Van Eyck create this very unusual work for Nicolas Rolin? Why is the background landscape so miniaturised as to be almost invisible? How should we interpret the two small figures in the garden? What are the connections between this painting, the art of illumination and funerary bas-reliefs? Do we know how the artists of the 15th century interpreted the work? The Rolin Madonna illustrates the tensions between medieval tradition and revolutionary experimentation that pervaded Flemish art in the first third of the 15th century.

Our investigation of the Madonna of Chancellor Rolin will be driven by comparison with other paintings by Van Eyck, as well as with works by Rogier van der Weyden, Robert Campin and the great illuminators of the time. Some sixty painted panels, manuscripts, drawings, bas-reliefs and precious metal artefacts will be brought together for this exhibition, made possible by the support of many museums and institutions in France and abroad, including the Städel Museum in Frankfurt (which is lending the Lucca Madonna for the first time), the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, the Royal Library in Brussels, the Morgan Library & Museum in New York and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
