Perugino, Master of Raphael

until  19 January 2015

Considered by his contemporaries as one of the greatest painters in Italy, Perugino (1450-1523) pioneered a new style of painting during the last decades of the 15th century and the first two of 16th century, which profoundly influenced the period. His crystal-clear art, made of translucence, harmonious colours and theatrical lighting, aroused a great deal of interest, and the original impressions of grace and seduction which he developed make him one of the best representatives of the Italian Renaissance.

More than just a chronological study of the artistic career of Perugino and his contemporaries, the exhibition will highlight the vital contributions these paintings made to the art and culture of their time. Pietro Perugino was the leader of an international artistic style which would spread throughout the rest of Europe thanks to the young Raphael (1483-1520), one of Perugino's students, whose works met with great success.

In this regard, the exhibition of some sixty paintings will establish a direct link between Perugino's and Raphael's works in relation to two main foci – landscape and portrait – to underline the stylistic continuity that developed between master and student. This will show how Pietro Perugino created and perfected an artistic language which the young Raphael then sensitively made his own, bringing it to a much wider audience.

From Watteau to Fragonard

The Musée Jacquemart-André is delighted to be holding the exhibition "From Watteau to Fragonard, les fêtes galantes". There will be approximately sixty works on display, mostly paintings lent for the occasion by major collections, predominantly public, from countries including France, Germany, the UK and the USA.

The poetical term "fête galante" refers to a new genre of paintings and drawings that blossomed in the early 18th century during the Regency period (1715-1723) and whose central figure was Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721). Inspired by images of bucolic merrymaking in the Flemish tradition, Watteau and his followers created a new form, with a certain timelessness, characterised by greater subtlety and nuance. These depict amorous scenes in settings garlanded with luxuriant vegetation, real or imaginary: idealised dancers, women and shepherds are shown engaged in frivolous pursuits or exchanging confidences.

 Nicolas Lancret (1690-1743) and Jean-Baptiste Pater (1695-1725) were greatly influenced by the master, their works revisiting and refining the codes of the "fêtes galantes". Their imaginary scenes are anchored in reality, featuring locations, works of art and multiple details that would have been easily recognisable to their contemporaries. The flexibility of the fête galante theme proved to be an invitation to experimentation and innovation, and the genre was to inspire several generations of artists, occupying a central place in French art throughout the 18th century. Works by other highly creative painters, such as François Boucher (1703-1770) and Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), illustrate their very personal visions of the joys of the fête galante as first imagined by Watteau.

The Musée Jacquemart-André, with its marvellous collection of 18th century French paintings, is the perfect setting for an exhibition looking at "fêtes galantes".

From 23rd September 2011 to 16th January 2012, the Jacquemart-André Museum is holding an exhibition dedicated to Fra Angelico, a major figure of the Quattrocento. The Jacquemart-André Museum is the first French museum to pay tribute to Fra Angelico and reconsider this exceptional artist’s career. The exhibition will present nearly 25 major works by Fra Angelico and a similar number of panels painted by some of his prestigious contemporaries, such as Lorenzo Monaco, Masolino, Paolo Uccello, Filippo Lippi and Zanobi Strozzi.

     Fra Angelico (c.1400-1455) was a major player in Florence’s artistic and cultural revolution at the beginning of the 15th century. His work combines the golden lustre inherited from Gothic style with a new understanding of perspective. He initiated the artistic movement which specialists have named the “Peintres de la Lumière” (painters of light).
Alongside his works will be hung those of renowned painters who significantly influenced his work, such as his teacher Lorenzo Monaco (1370-1424), Masolino (1383-c. 1440) and Paolo Uccello (1397- 1475), as well as artists that he inspired, such as Filippo Lippi (1406-1469) and Zanobi Strozzi (1412- 1468).
The “Fra Angelico and the Masters of Light” exhibition is being held in partnership with major Italian museums – including the Uffizi Gallery – and internationally famous collections.
