The former train station of Orsay has become a legendary place to visit for those who appreciate the major achievements of 19th century French art. Guests staying at the Hôtel Beaugency know this well, especially with the museum located so close by. A further reason to be amongst the local population from February 13 to June 5? The magnificent exhibition dedicated to Gustave Doré.
He is famous for the incredible illustrations he produced for books by Dante, Rabelais, Hugo and Balzac. His etchings have shown extraordinary evocative power, appearing on the pages of works by the greatest European authors. Gustave Doré (1832-1883) demonstrated, undoubtedly, and throughout the 19th century, that he was a European “Master of Imagination”.
Magnificent or comical. This is something one quickly becomes aware of when wandering through this magnificent exhibition, an exhibition which has the advantage of exploring every facet of this great French artist, from drawing to painting, and from watercolor to etching and sculpture. Magnificent or comical, baroque or capricious: It is his way of constantly eliciting an emotional response from us!
