The Gaudi exhibition in Musee d’ Orsay in Paris in 2023 will be France’s first major Gaudi exhibition in the last fifty years. If you visit the exhibition, you can see drawings made by Gaudi, preparing for the construction of Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and other buildings and projects on which he worked.

Antoni Gaudi was a renowned Spanish architect who is widely considered one of the most innovative and creative architects of the 20th century. He was born in Reus, Catalonia, Spain on June 25, 1852, and spent most of his life in Barcelona, where he became famous for his unique and highly distinctive designs.

Gaudi was a religious man and was heavily influenced by his Catholic faith in his work. He is best known for his designs for several buildings in Barcelona, including the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, and Casa Milà. His architectural style is characterized by its use of organic shapes, intricate ornamentation, and innovative engineering techniques.

One of Gaudi’s most famous works is the Sagrada Familia, a massive church in Barcelona that has been under construction since 1882. Gaudi dedicated the latter part of his life to this project, and at the time of his death in 1926, it was still incomplete. Today, the Sagrada Familia remains one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist attractions and is widely regarded as one of Gaudi’s greatest works.

Did you know that Gaudi visited France in 1878, as part of a trip to Paris to attend the World Fair? During this trip, he first encountered the work of French architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, whose Gothic architecture theories would profoundly influence Gaudi’s work. Gaudi also studied the work of French Art Nouveau architects such as Hector Guimard and Emile Gallé.

Manet and Degas in Musee d’ Orsay.

Édouard Manet (1832-1883) and Edgar Degas (1834-1917) are both famous painter. In this temporary exhibition in Musee d’ Orsay in Paris, you can visit works from both painters next to one another and see how they had an impact on one another, their differences, and compare their works.

Édouard Manet was a French painter and a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. He was born in Paris in 1832 and had a strong influence on the development of modern art. Manet’s paintings were controversial and challenged traditional conventions of art, often depicting everyday subjects in a modern and innovative way. Some of his most famous works include “Olympia,” “Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe,” and “A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.” His bold use of color, loose brushwork, and rejection of academic standards paved the way for the Impressionist movement.

Edgar Degas was a French artist who lived from 1834 to 1917 and is considered one of the greatest painters of the 19th century. He is known for depicting dancers, racehorses, and Parisian life. Degas was a prominent figure in the Impressionist movement and is recognized for his innovative use of composition, light, and color. He was a master of pastel and had a unique ability to capture movement in his paintings. Some of his most famous works include “The Dance Class,” “L’Absinthe,” and “The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer.”

Now that you know more about both painters, you probably understand why an exhibition featuring both painters next to one another is so interesting.
