Caricatures and satirical drawings - March 21st to June 20th 2016

From its extensive collections, the Musée d'Orsay unveils a selection of satirical drawings, paintings, scultpures, objets d'art, photography, prints and documents. Satire in the visual arts quickly gained popularity in the 19th century, aided by the facilitated diffusion of illustrated press to the general public.  Throughout the second half of the 19th century and into the 20th century, artists conveyed their political views through their art and provided a commentary of contemporary issues, such as the Dreyfus Affaire and World War I.

Architecture 1900: Between Paris and Vienna - Febraury 8th to May 8th 2016

Around 1900 in France, like in Austria, the Art Nouveau style  was revolutionising architectural forms by moving away from a Classical vocabulary and instead emphasising the evocation of nature. While this new, organic focus in France brought about a reconsideration of historical styles, notably the baroque, under the influence of Otto Wagner Viennese architectural forms demonstrated a movement towards a formal, geometric simplification. In this period of evolution drawing, as a link between line and form, played a central role. In considering the role and function of ornamentation, this study of Parisien and Viennese architecture of the 1900s illustrates the early beginnings of 20th century modernity.
