Categories : Exhibition, published on : 4/28/24

Explore an unknown aspect of two painting giants of the 19th century, Ingres and Delacroix, through the objects that marked their personal lives.

This exhibition offers a unique experience by unveiling the human dimension of these two art geniuses.

Discover a selection of evocative objects that belonged to the artists, such as Ingres's famous violin, Delacroix's fish-shaped tobacco pot, a laurel wreath given to Ingres by the people of Montauban, or an inkwell brought back by Delacroix from his 1832 trip to Morocco. These artifacts reveal the personal tastes and memories of the painters.

Immerse yourself in the daily lives of the artists and explore the relationship between their personal lives and their work through a meticulous selection of objects and paintings.

The Musée Delacroix, nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, provides an ideal setting for this encounter between Ingres and Delacroix. The exhibition juxtaposes the artists' personal objects and works, highlighting the contrasts and similarities in their artistic styles.

In addition to the main exhibition, the museum offers a series of special events and activities to enhance your visit, including study days, live artistic performances, guided tours, and workshops.

For further information, the reception team at Hotel FABRIC is at your disposal.

The exhibition runs until June 10, 2024, from Wednesday to Monday, from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, with late-night openings until 9 pm every first Thursday of the month.
