Desirs & Voluptés
Under the Victorian era
From 13/09/2013 to 20/01/2014
The Desirs and Volupté exhibition invites you to discover the artists in England during the reign of Victoria, including Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Frederic Leighton, Edward Burne-Jones and Albert Moore. The paintings exhibited reflect the common desire of the artists to pay tribute to the “cult of beauty”. The artists expressed a sensual aesthetic with paintings offering a sharp contrast to the severity and moralising attitudes of the day.
The paintings on show are some of which are veritable icons of British art (The Roses of Heliogabalus by Alma-Tadema, Greek Girls Picking up Pebbles by the Sea by Leighton, The Quartet by Albert Moore, Andromeda by Poynter, etc.), are part of one of the most extensive private collections of Victorian paintings: the Pérez Simón collection.
