Although he belonged to an important line of 18th-century artists, Jean-Baptiste Huet (1745-1811) had never been the subject of a monographic exhibition.
In celebration of its grand reopening, the Musée Cognacq-Jay has offered Christian Lacroix a creative carte blanche.
This exhibition pays tribute to the exquisite skill of French fan-makers, casting new light on the extraordinary creativity embodied in these delicate, discreet works of art.
An initiative which explores the inherent fragility of works of art, the way they age, the actions we can take to stave off the ravages of time and the potential and limitations of restoration work.
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.
