Viva Roma! – 25.04.2018 > 26.08.2018

Hubert Robert Les Découvreurs dantiquesIn partnership with the Louvre Museum, this new international calibre exhibition brings us to Rome through expressions of European paintings.  The exhibition takes us along the footprints of the “Grand Tour” followers, ancestors of current tourists, who travelled in order to refine their education, but also artists, amateurs, and art collectors.

Following the success of the inaugural exhibition, En plein air, here is a second previously unseen and international calibre exhibition, executed again in partnership with the Louvre Museum. It brings its visitors to the heart of Rome so that they can discover the fascination of European artists for this mythical city. Coming from the Louvre and more than 40 foreign institutions including the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen, etc, these 170 works take us on a trip.

From the 17th - 20th century, the “voyage to Rome” established itself as a source of infinite inspiration where prevails the connections to Antiquity artworks. The former capital of the Roman Empire exercised a powerful hand of seduction through its monuments such as the Coliseum, its nearby sites (Pompei, Herculaneum) and its art depicting ideal beauty, which was inherited from the Greeks.

The exhibition addresses all the singularity of a city of contrasts and pleasures, to the light of the South: its different neighbourhoods, its palaces, galleries, restless life of the population, and even gastronomy which stroke new colours to Art in Europe. A catalogue, as well as an edition of the Liege.museum review will summarize through text and image this ambitious exhibition which is suitable to intrigue all audiences.

In order for you to take a complete Grand Tour of Rome, discover soon events linked to the exhibition (concerts, conferences, readings, films,…).
