AccrocheJ. F. Millet, a retrospective: the autumn exhibition-event in Lille!
PRESENTATION / PROGRAM
This short break is available from 13th october 2017 to 22nd january 2018
HOTEL + EXHIBITIONS "JEAN-FRANÇOIS MILLET - MILLET USA" AT THE ' PALAIS DES BEAUX-ARTS' + CITY TOUR
The Angelus is undoubtedly, with La Joconde, the most famous painting of Western art. Paradoxically, the whole of Jean-François Millet's work is today to be rediscovered.
The great international retrospective at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille highlights a profoundly inventive artist and admired by the avant-garde, a talented draftsman. For a long time labeled a "peasant painter," his paintings and drawings reveal above all the sensitive and poetic universe of an extraordinary painter who has profoundly marked Van Gogh, Pissarro, Seurat, Gauguin, Permeke, Dali and more recently Banksy.
The exhibition "Millet USA" explores the American posterity of the artist through the works of poets, painters, photographers and filmmakers, from Edward Hopper to Dorothea Lange through Terrence Malick and Mat Collishaw.
Opening times: Monday from 2 pm to 6 pm, and from Wednesday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Fridays only: evening sessions until 8 pm.
