Ongoing Exhibitions

Exhibition: The Egypt of the Pharaohs. From Cheops to Ramses II

Until: January 5th, 2025 (229 days remaining.)

Description:
From February 9, 2024, step back in time and rediscover the Egypt of the pharaohs through the masterpieces of this mythical civilization, which spans three millennia and fascinates every generation. Grains of sand lifted by the wind reveal the remains of ancient Egypt as they appeared to French scientists during the Egyptian Campaign of 1798-1801, and as painter David Roberts drew them, noting in his notebook "We are a people of dwarfs visiting a nation of giants". In the beginning, ancient Egypt had its own cosmogony, a rich account of the genesis of the world. The sacred forces of the gods clash and reveal themselves on the walls of the Atelier des Lumières, right up to the appearance of the first men on earth. The journey continues along the Nile, sacred river and source of life. The rhythm of the floods and the seasons provides the fertile silt needed for a luxuriant flora and fauna to flourish.


 

Exhibition: The Orientalists. Ingres, Delacroix, Gérôme...

Until: January 5th, 2025 (229 days remaining.)

Description:
In the 19th century, the gates of the Orient opened for Western painters drawn by the mysteries of distant lands. Dazzled by the light of the Deep South, revealing the reliefs of arid landscapes and the colors of spectacularly patterned architecture, the Orientalists Delacroix, Gérôme, Ingres and other major names of European expression, invited us on a veritable pictorial expedition to a new, exotic and bewitching world of the dreamed-of Orient.
