Visages de l’effroi, the exhibition at the Musée de la Vie romantique

What could be better than starting your year with a visit to one of the most renowned French museums, and learn more about a significant artistic era through an informative exhibition?  

Here comes the occasion to enjoy the successful exhibition Visages de l’effroi, held at the Musée de la Vie Romantique up to the 28th of February, 2016.

The exhibition will be highlighting violence and fantasy that marked the artistic scene of the 18th century

The violence of the time and the Napoleonic wars are a reality of the horror found in the paintings of David, Delacroix and Géricault, which made this feeling of dread one of the pillars of the art at that time.

With the exhibition Visages de l’effroi (Faces of terror), the Musée de la Vie romantique goes back to one of the favorite subjects of romantic artists: violence and terror.

The exhibition will put together more than a hundred paintings, drawings and sculptures dedicated to the fantastic romance with the biggest French representatives of the genre.

Through Visages de l’Effroi, the Museum of Romantic Life traces the genesis of the genre and discusses the motivations of these artists of the 18th century dealing with the expression of torment and the irrational.

Guests staying at Hotel Powers will be within a 15-minute drive from the Musée de La Vie Romantique to assist the exhibition held until the 28th of February, 2016. Mark your calendars!
