From 13 Sept. to 20 Jan. 2020, The Alana Collection, Masterpieces of Italian Painting
The Jacquemart-André museum, owned by the Institut de France, presents collections of art that are worthy of great museums in a magnificent Second Empire mansion. Often compared to the Frick Collection in New York, it has maintained its mansion atmosphere, which makes it unique in Paris. It offers a discovery of living areas of the 19th century: ceremonial rooms, monumental stairways, winter garden, private apartments, etc.
Edouard André, 19th century collector, and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, renowned portrait artist, travelled across Europe and the East to acquire rare works of art and furniture. The collections brought together are some of the most remarkable in France: works from Flemish and German schools, detached frescoes, refined furniture and tapestries also find their place on the ground floor of the house. But Nélie Jacquemart devoted most of her attention to the Renaissance period in Florence and Venice. In fact, the first floor is devoted to Italian art during this period.
Among must-see works of art, you will be able to admire paintings of Canaletto, François Boucher, Jean Siméon Chardin, Rembrandt, Louise-Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, Jacques-Louis David, Antoon Van Dyck, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Sandro Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, or Giovanni Bellini, among others.
From September 13th until January 20th 2020, the Jacquemart-André Museum has the honor of presenting the Alana collection, one of the most precious and secret Italian Renaissance private collections in the world, which is currently being preserved in the United States. Echoing it's exceptional collection of Italian Art, the Jacquemart-André Museum exhibits more than 75 masterpieces of the greatest Italian masters of the likes of Lorenzo Monaco, Fra Angelico, Uccello, Lippi, Bellini, Carpaccio, Tintoret, Véronèse, Bronzino, and Gentileschi. This art exhibit offers the unique opportunity to admire the paintings, the sculptures and the works of art that have yet to be presented to the public.
