Masculin / Masculin — L’homme nu dans l’art de 1800 à nos jours Ends in 26 days: September 24, 2013 → January 2, 2014 Thème éternellement repris par les artistes, le corps masculin s’expose au Musée d’Orsay, avec des œuvres de 1800 à aujourd’hui. L’exposition fait se succéder les canons esthétiques hérités de l’Antiquité et leur réinterprétation aux époques néo-classique, symboliste et contemporaine, dans un constant souci de glorification du nu.

Allegro Barbaro — Béla Bartók et la modernité hongroise, 1905-1920 Ends in 29 days: October 15, 2013 → January 5, 2014 With around one hundred paintings from public collections in Hungary and from private collections, including numerous documents relating to the young Bartók and to the musicians, composers, writers, poets, philosophers and psychoanalysts in his circle, the exhibition aims to revive this rich dialogue between music and the arts from early 20th century Hungary.
Archives Félicie de Fauveau — L’amazone de la sculpture Past: June 11 → September 15 Félicie de Fauveau (1801-1886) is a figure as emblematic as she is unique. Nostalgic for an era that she had not lived through, a royalist, a catholic, a single woman and a feminist, this sculptress commits her life and her art to defending a political utopia, expressed principally through images of History.
Archives Une passion française — La collection Marlene et Spencer Hays Past: April 16 → August 18 Marlene and Spencer Hays, passionate about French culture, created, over several decades, an outstanding collection of 19th century and early 20th century works. The exhibition will enable us to discover not only the major works of world famous artists, but also more secret treasures that demonstrate the confident, independent taste of their owners.
Archives L’ange du bizarre — Le romantisme noir de Goya à Max Ernst Past: March 5 → June 9 Dark Romanticism is a vast swathe of artistic creation, which from the 1760s onwards exploited the shadows, excesses and irrational elements that lurked behind the apparent triumph of enlightened Reason. The Musée d’Orsay plans to present the many different expressions of Dark Romanticism, from Goya to Max Ernst and the Expressionist films of the 1920s.
Archives Félix Thiollier Photographe (1842 — 1914) Past: November 13, 2012 → February 10, 2013 Remaining resolutely on the fringes of the photographic circles of his time, Thiollier turned out to have created an original body of work which varied between picturesque, post-Romantic rural landscapes and a starkly lyrical view of an industrial world largely ignored by the artistic French photographers of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Archives L’impressionnisme et la mode Past: September 25, 2012 → January 20, 2013 Anxious to account for contemporary life, Impressionism favoured the representation of human figures in their daily surroundings and captured the “modern” man in his routine activities, both in cities and in the countryside.
Archives Victor Baltard (1805 — 1874) — Le Fer et le pinceau Past: October 16, 2012 → January 13, 2013 An ambivalent character, Baltard was constantly torn between the artistic nature of his work and his thirst for technical innovation. With various artworks (architectural drawings, models, old photographs, paintings, furniture, stained glass, etc.), the exhibition will demonstrate the part both of these preoccupations played in nourishing his creativity.
Archives Misia, reine de Paris Past: June 12 → September 9, 2012 From the Belle Époque to the Roaring 20’s, Misia Godebska was a legendary figure of the French art scene, at the centre of a group of the champions of a symbolistic and decorative art, and one of the most sought-after models of her time. This multidisciplinary exhibition illustrates the prolific creative activity at the time Misia was the Queen of Paris.
Archives Degas et le nu Past: March 13 → July 1, 2012 Throughout his career, Degas constantly represented the nude, readily repeating poses he had used several decades previously. Therefore, more than any other genre, the nude demonstrates his stylistic evolution, from his early classical training based on the copy of ancient masters to his late research into movement the radical approach to forms.
Archives Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865 — 1931) Past: February 7 → May 6, 2012 Although recognised as one of the most emblematic artists of the Finnish genius at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Akseli Gallen-Kallela has never been the subject of a monographic exhibition in France. Yet he was closely linked with Paris: a pupil of the Académie Julian in the 1880s, he triumphed at the 1900 World Fair with the frescoes of the Finnish Pavillon.

Archives Beauté, morale et volupté dans l’Angleterre d’Oscar Wilde Past: September 13, 2011 → January 15, 2012 Cette exposition explore l’aesthetic movement qui, dans l’Angleterre de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, se donne pour vocation d’échapper à la laideur et au matérialisme de l’époque, par une nouvelle idéalisation de l’art. Peintres, poètes, décorateurs et créateurs définissent un art libéré des principes d’ordre et de la moralité victorienne.
Archives Édouard Manet — Manet, inventeur du Moderne Past: April 5 → July 3, 2011 More than just a strictly linear, monographic retrospective, this exhibition constructs its premise around some questions closely related to the historical process from which Manet cannot be separated. Simplifying his modernity to an iconographic register or bringing it down to a few stylistic elements, comes from a reductive approach.
Archives Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) Past: March 8 → May 29, 2011 L’exposition propose une manière inédite d’exposer la musique et de comprendre les sources de son inspiration. En aucun cas, elle n’est conçue comme une exposition exclusive de partitions ou de manuscrits. L’objectif est de montrer des objets de toutes les disciplines : peintures, dessins, sculptures, photographies, enregistrements sonores.
Archives Une balade d’amour et de mort — Photographie préraphaélite en Grande-Bretagne, 1848-1875 Past: March 8 → May 29, 2011 The historian and art critic, John Ruskin, had a great influence in Great Britain on the development of early photography in the 1850s. The leading Pre-Raphaelite painters wished to change the pictorial conventions and in order to demonstrate the transformations in modern life, invented a radically new idiom.
