Paris Art Studies
Thursday 21 May, 10 - 11:30 am– Adolfo Wildt (until 13 July 2015)
Visit to the exhibition at the Musée de l'Orangerie with Chris Boïcos
This is an exhibition devoted to one of the most talented yet least known Italian sculptors of the turn of the 20th
century. The sculpture of Adolfo Wildt (1868-1931) bridges the modern movements of Symbolism and
Expressionism, yet is also based on the artist's profound knowledge of antique and Gothic sculpture. A superb
carver, he is famous for the extraordinary smoothness of his marble heads that hover uneasily between an ideal
decorative polish and a sometimes disturbingly grotesque mask. He is an artist that wonderfully expresses the
excessive refinement of Art Nouveau as well as the anxieties and neuroses of fin de siècle Italy and the period just
before the Great War. This an exceptional opportunity to discover his best work gathered together in a single
exhibition, his first ever in Paris.
Place: Musée de l'Orangerie in the Tuileries gardens facing Place de la Concorde on river side.
Métro: Concorde (lines 1, 8, 12)
Time: Meet 9:45 for 10 am entry. Please bring 9€ for the exhibition ticket and 2€ for the headphones in
exact change (11 € total).
Thursday 28 May - 10:30 am - 12 noon (time to be confirmed)
The 18th century furniture galleries at the Louvre - Part II
Visit to the Louvre with Decorative Arts historian and curator Rebecca Tilles *
The Louvre's collection of eighteenth-century decorative art – royal furniture, decorative bronzes, rugs, tapestries, gold
and silver ware, porcelain, jewelry and scientific instruments – is one of the richest and most comprehensive collections of
its kind in the world. The new exhibition spaces in the Louvre, inaugurated last year, were designed by the renowned
architect Jacques Garcia. In this second visit to the galleries, we will be covering the Rococo and Neoclassical periods
from Louis XV to the end of the Ancien Régime with Marie-Antoinette. Our guide, Rebecca Tilles, is an 18th century
specialist who has curated major decorative arts exhibitions at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Louvre.
Place: Meet by the information desk inside Louvre Pyramid.
Métro: Palais-Royal- Musée du Louvre (lines 1,7).
Time: 10:15 am for 10:30 start (to be confirmed). Please buy your own museum ticket.
