C'est quoi votre genre ? Nouvel accrochage des collections

Aix-en-Provence - Peinture - From 20/11/2021 to 31/12/2022 between 12 pm and 6 pm. Closed on Monday.

Le musée Granet réaccroche une partie de ses collections avec de nouvelles œuvres et une nouvelle façon de les faire découvrir. Ce nouvel accrochage fera des variations sur la thématique du "genre" en peinture ; peinture d'histoire, peinture religieuse, portrait, paysage, scène de genre comme un repas galant, un couple de paysans qui discutent en gardant les bêtes,...

Cet ensemble sera présenté dans un nouvel écrin où les couleurs, le redimensionnement des salles d'exposition, offriront au grand public une nouvelle approche des riches collections du musée Granet.

L'occasion aussi d'observer combien les dons et legs que le musée Granet a pu obtenir au fil des décennies, font la part belle aux portraits, paysages et scènes de genre, autant de thématiques prisées par les collectionneurs aixois dans leurs cabinets de curiosité à une époque où la ville d'Aix était, de part sa situation géographique, un carrefour entre l'Est et l'Ouest, le Nord et le Sud…
