British Stories in the Fine Arts Museum
The exhibition centre stages Bordeaux Fine Arts Museum’s extensive collection of British works: paintings, illustrations, prints and sculptures, enhanced with the exceptional loan of a dozen masterpieces from the Paris Louvre Museum’s English collection. It includes work by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Thomas Lawrence, as well as artists rarely seen in France such as Benjamin West and Johan Zoffany.
Absolutely bizarre! The bizarre tale of the Bristol School (1800-1840) at the Fine Arts Gallery
An enduring love affair exists between Bordeaux and Bristol as the two cities have been twinned for 71 years. Here, a collection of some 75 British works from the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and from the Louvre Museum are showcased. The Bristol School is in particular recognized for its landscape, occasionally fantastic, painting.
For information: this collection is on show at the Fine Arts Museum and Gallery. 2 exhibition sites for the same Museum, located close to Bordeaux City Hall.
