Reflections in a black eye
PARIS – How did artists look at black men and women, and how did mentalities evolve regarding the abolition of slavery (with a first attempt during the French Revolution, eliminated by Napoleon, and finally confirmed in 1848) and what influence did this have? The exhibition aims at answering these questions by taking the viewer through a whole century with Delacroix as well as Manet and Cézanne, up to the pioneers of photography such as Nadar.
• Le modèle noir de Géricault à Matisse at the musée d’Orsay, from 26 March to 21 July 2019.
