Joris-Karl Huysmans exhibition at Musée d’Orsay
From 26th of November until 1st of March 2020, the exhibition of the little known but extraordinary 19th century writer and art critic Joris-Karl Huysmans will be held at the Musée d’Orsay. Somewhat misunderstood by the general public in his day made him fade away into obscurity over the years. His contribution to the artistic press and the aesthetic debate was as decisive as the impact of his novel “à rebours”. With this exhibition we can once again discover the leading role Huysmans had in the world of art and how he navigated the various artistic currents of the late 19th century, from Degas to Grünewald.
Nous les Arbres, Fondation Cartier (from 12th July to 10th November)
Nous les Arbres (“Us, the trees”) is an incredible exhibition combining nature, contemporary art, philosophy and science altogether. This exhibition is the result of scientists and artists, sharing the same affection for nature, and exchanging thoughts to finally highlight important environmental issues whilst promoting the beauty of these threatened living creatures. Drawings, paintings, photographs, films and installations from artists coming from all over the world will be the subject of this exhibition which promises to be as fascinating as it is revealing.

The black model of Géricault at Matisse
The exhibition primarily focuses on the question of models, and therefore the dialogue between the artist who paints, sculpts, engraves or photographs and the model who poses. It notably explores the way in which the representation of black subjects evolved in major works by Théodore Géricault, Charles Cordier, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Edouard Manet, Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse, as well as the photographs of Nadar and Carjat.
