Olympism Modern Invention, Ancient Legacy

24 April 2024 16 September 2024
Among the cultural events designed to accompany the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris is an exhibition at the Louvre on the creation of the first modern Olympic Games. Visitors will discover how the Games came into being in the late 19th century: the political context of the time, the iconographic sources on which they were based, and how the organisers set out to recreate the sporting competitions of...

The exhibition sheds light on the origins of the world's largest and most-watched sporting competition. This international event was the brainchild of Pierre de Coubertin and a number of French and Greek luminaries, who were later joined by Swiss draughtsman Émile Gilliéron (1850-1924). Gilliéron trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and was a frequent visitor to the Louvre, where he copied a number of its masterpieces. Having settled in Greece, he was named the official artist of the 1896 Olympic Games and of the 1906 Mesolympics, both held in Athens, for which he designed the winners' trophies, inspired by discoveries made at the major archaeological excavation sites of the period. Using the latest reproduction techniques of his time, the artist illustrated communication materials - in particular postage stamps and posters - for the newly formed Greek state.

Thanks to a special loan from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the Louvre will exhibit the first Olympic Cup, known as 'Bréal's Cup', designed by French academic Michel Bréal and created by a French silversmith for the winner of the first marathon - a race invented for the modern Olympic Games.

As part of the programme of cultural events accompanying the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the exhibition will show how the scientific disciplines of philology, history, art history and archaeology came together to create this global sporting event.

Ingres and Delacroix. Artists' Objects

27 March 2024 10 June 2024
A tobacco jar in the shape of a fish that belonged to Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863), a gilded laurel crown awarded to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) by the citizens of Montauban to celebrate his admission to the Senate, an illuminator's inkpot in Fez-style pottery, brought back by Delacroix from his travels in Morocco in 1832, paint-daubed palettes, Ingres's famous violin......

These ordinary objects bear witness to the personal tastes and creative processes of two great artists. What do they tell us about their famous owners? How much of the man was in the artist? How much of the artist in the man? Ingres et Delacroix: Artists' Objects (27 March-10 June 2024) suggests some answers.

Organised by the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix - Établissement Public du Musée du Louvre and the Musée Ingres Bourdelle - Ville de Montauban, this exhibition will be presented in Paris from 27 March to 10 June 2024, then, in a version adapted for that locale, in Montauban from 11 July to 10 November 2024.

Paris 1874 Inventing impressionism

25 March 2024 14 July 2024
150 years ago, on April 15, 1874, the first impressionist exhibition opened in Paris. "Hungry for independence", Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morisot, Pissarro, Sisley and Cézanne finally decided to free themselves from the rules by holding their own exhibition, outside official channels: impressionism was born. To celebrate this anniversary, Musée d'Orsay is presenting some 130 works and bringing a fresh eye to...

The exhibition at Musée d'Orsay evidences the contradictions and infinite variety of contemporary creation in that spring of 1874, while highlighting the radical modernity of those young artists. "Good luck!" one critic encouraged them, "Innovations always lead to something."

This exhibition is organized by the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée de l'Orangerie and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, where it will be presented from September 8, 2024 to January 20, 2025.
