The Angel of the Odd. Dark Romanticism from Goya to Max Ernst at the Musée d'Orsay until June 23rd
We went to see this fascinating exhibition a couple of weeks ago. The exhibit brings together around 200 works: paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures from the late 18th century to the early 20th century, as well as twelve films. It presents an overview of the dark romanticism movement. You will find artists such as Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Delacroix, Hugo, Friedrich, Böcklin, Moreau, Stuck, Ensor, Mucha, Redon, Dali, Ernst, Klee...
All these work share a dark and disturbing subject matter, which often incorporates superstitions or unnerving themes. Vampires, witches, demons, ghosts, ghouls, the forbidden, fantastic and occult...we can't guarantee you you won't have nightmares!!
Open every day except Monday from 9.30 am to 6 pm.
Late night opening on Thursday until 9.45 pm.
Tickets can be bought online and printed at home
