Conférence d'histoire de l'art

Châteaurenard - Bibliothèque municipale - Visual Arts - In September - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

2016 : "Vermeer est au sommet de la tradition réaliste du nord. mais c'est avant tout l'illusion du réel, la forme mouvante, qu'il nous raconte avec une infinie poésie, une singulière maîtrise du reflet. Rien n'est moins évident chez Vermeer que la réalité. Toute sa vie, son regard s'est confronté à la justesse des sensations, à l'exigence de leur traduction. Peindre fut un acte de foi, une aventure du regard, l'ambition de n'être jamais dans l'évidence".
Conférence donnée par Chantal Duquéroux, historienne de l'art.
