    • Dessiner en plein air. Variation du dessin sur nature dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle

      18 oct. 2017 > 29 jan. 2018

      The exhibition intends to show the diversity of the practice of drawing in open air or from motifs in France in the first half of the 19th century and focuses on some of the greatest French artists such as Delacroix, Delacroix, Corot, Chassériau, Valenciennes, Daubigny, and some lesser-known artists like the engraver Bléry… Staged with the exceptional support of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the support of the Musée d’Orsay, the exhibition groups over one hundred drawings and etchings, along with around thirty sketchbooks, the ultimate instrument of plein-air drawing.

    • François I and Dutch Art

      18 oct. 2017 > 15 jan. 2018

      François I’s taste for Italian art may be well known and his patronage primarily recognized by the creation of an Italian school at Fontainebleau, but his reign was equally marked by a vigorous tradition of Dutch artists settling in France. A whole segment of the French Renaissance is now resurfacing; and this exhibition sets out to reveal its many and varied facets, its extravagance, and its monumental character.

    • Power Plays

      27 sept. 2017 > 2 juil. 2018

      Governing entails selfpresentation as a way of affirming authority, legitimacy and prestige. Thus art in the hands of patrons becomes a propaganda tool. Spanning the period from antiquity up to our own time, forty works from the Musée du Louvre, the Musée National du Château de Pau, the Château de Versailles and the Musée des Beaux-arts de la Ville de Paris illustrate the evolution of the codes behind the representation of political power.
