Through September 4th, 2016.

Charles GleyreThe Deluge© Clémentine Bossard, Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne
To date, France has never devoted a solo exhibition to Charles Gleyre. Yet he was a major figure in academy painting in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century. For a long time, given the smooth perfection of his facture and his subject matter, mostly taken from mythology, he was taken for a cold, conventional esthete blind to the revolutions of his time.

Dynamic Visions 

The works in Dynamic Visions seem to both challenge us to analyze their effect and invite us to immerse ourselves in their stimulating and often ingenious vision of life. Each piece appears to contain a whole world of lively possibility that bears a strong relation to what we know, yet almost transcends the understood, taking us along for the ride. 


Marten & Oopjen at RIJKSMUSEUM

Rembrandt Portraits of Marten & Oopjen
July 2 2016 to October 2 2016 at RIJKSMUSEUM in Amsterdam

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), Portrait of Marten Soolmans , 1634. Oil on canvas, 210 x 135 cm. Acquired by the Dutch State for the Rijksmuseum / Portrait of Oopjen Coppit, 1634 Oil on canvas, 210 x 133 cm. Acquired by the French Republic for the Musée du Louvre

Early this year the two Rembrandt portraits were bought together by the Netherlands and France, a unique event. From 2 July to 2 October 2016 Marten & Oopjen will have a place of honour alongside The Night Watch. The paintings will then be restored at the Rijksmuseum. Rembrandt painted the marriage portraits of the newly-weds Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit in Amsterdam in 1634, when he was twenty-eight. The portraits, more than two metres high, remained in private hands for almost four centuries. Wim Pijbes, General Director Rijksmuseum: What no one thought possible is now reality: the most wanted and least exhibited Rembrandts in the world, in the Louvre and the Rijksmuseum in turn, in the public domain and within everyone’s reach

‘It’s all about capturing what the eye cannot see, but what the mind knows is there! When I paint, it’s not so much about the subject matter. It’s about movement, the movement that is always there. I want to capture that movement, show it thorough lines and colour, express how it changes and influences the energy that is always surrounding us.’
