Exhibition Private collections: a voyage from Impressionism to Fauvism at the Marmottan Museum, 13th September 2018 – 10th February 2019
The Marmottan Museum opens a new exhibition to shocwase the importance of works lent by private collections, with sixty-two paintings, drawings and sculptures that are rarely – or have never been – shown in Paris.
You’ll be able to see exceptional works by Bourdelle, Camille Claudel, Degas, Caillebotte, Raoul Dufy, Matisse, Gauguin, Monet, (of course), Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir, Rodin, Van Gogh…
Designed as a continuation of their 2014 exhibition The impressionists in private, Private collections: a voyage from Impressionism to Fauvism presents works belonging to individuals with enough philanthropic spirit to allow them to be lent occasionally to museums.
With so many Impressionists in the list of artists, most of the works on show are of course paintings, but there are also a few sculptures, and each piece is given in-depth commentary about how it was conceived and how it ended up in a private collection.
It’s a rare occasion to see these works close up. Out of the sixty-two on show, half have not been presented in Paris for over fifty years!
For more on the subject, there are workshops related to the exhibition available for kids, and a catalogue has just been published (192 pages, 29€ here at amazon.fr).
The exhibition Private collections: a voyage from Impressionism to Fauvism is at the Marmottan Museum (here) from 13th September 2018 – 10th February 2019
Open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-6pm (9pm Thursdays, except Thursday 13th September)
