Du 25 février au 25 juin 2017, le musée Cognacq-Jay vous invite à Venise le temps d'un carnaval!
Praised for their medicinal and therapeutic properties, the so-called "exotic" drinks introduced in Europe in the 17th century became associated with the pleasures and high society of the 18th century.
The exhibition showcases the immense talent of François-André Vincent (1746-1816), covering his sketching career and presenting the broad diversity of his subjects and techniques.
The Musée Cognacq-Jay presents an original show juxtaposing items from the museum’s eighteenth-century collection with works by Dalou, the great Republican sculptor of the late nineteenth century.
With over 240 works of exceptional beauty and workmanship, the Musée Cognacq-Jay is home to one of the largest collections of boxes and ‘objets de vertu’ in France, featuring vanity cases, tobacco cases and other luxury accessories.
The exhibition Tivoli: Variations on an eighteenth-century landscape takes a fresh look at the evolution of landscapes in art in the period 1720-1830 by focusing on one subject in particular: the Roman town of Tivoli and its famous ‘Temple of the Sibyl’. The show features over fifty paintings, drawings and engravings, as well as an original cork model from the period, largely drawn from French public and private collections.
This exhibition at the Musée Cognacq-Jay invites visitors to share in a dual discovery: a rare opportunity to explore the work of a great neglected artist, and a selection of works never before put on public display.
