orangerie 1934 les peintres de la réalité
The re-opening of the Museum of the Orangery follows a long restoration which returned to space all its qualities of space and light of formerly. The first exhibition of this autumn is a true homage to the history of the place since it takes again the identical set of themes of the exhibition organized in 1934 by Paul Jamot and Charles Sterling and which was entitled : Painters of reality in France at the XVIIth century. Inside, a virtual reconstitution completely restores the exhibition of then, which counted 80 signed paintings George of the Tower, the brothers Le Nain, Philippe de Champaigne, etc. Half of the paintings hung into 1934 were again gathered for the occasion. The event was famous because it revealed with the public the existence of George de la Tour, completely ignored at the time. The present exhibition respects the spirit of the painters of reality by accompanying these treasures by passed by about fifteen paintings active French painters in 1934. We learn there that Balthus took as a starting point the the Cheater of the Tower, that Juan Gris adored Le Nain, and that Maurice Denis, Jean Hélion, Rene Magritte, Pablo Picasso appreciated particularly this French classicism.
