The darkest exhibition of Paris can be found at the Musée d’Orsay until June 9, 2013! Rush to visit « The Angel of the Odd » and discover the « Dark Romanticism » that inspired all of Europe during the 19th century! An exhibition about the comeback of the eerie oddness after the Age of Enlightenment.
Goya announced to his century that madness, darkness and oddness had not disappeared from the continent. Despite the Enlightenment, despite the reason. Then, it was up to the entire 19th century to proclaim it with the comeback of a world of grim, terror and fear. Dark Romanticism then set the style on all types of art expressions.
From Goya (1746-1828) to Max Ernst (1891-1976).. From architecture to painting, from literature to etching and later on cinema… Along the more than 200 exceptional works covering paintings, graphic arts, sculptures and cinematic works, the Musée d’Orsay invites you to meet with the Angel of the Odd and the Dark Romanticism.
