A singular selection provided by the great master-painters:
Cézanne, the Master of Provence (2021) invites you to immerse yourself in the masterpieces of the Aix painter Cézanne, through the most emblematic landscapes of Provence. From his still lifes to the multiple variations around the Sainte-Victoire, the works testify to the creative force of the artist, his attachment to the permanent presence of nature, and his evolution towards an abstract reality of colors and forms.
Gaudi, Architect of the Imagination (2020) pays tribute to this architectural genius through his buildings, which are now classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. It proposes a journey, between dream and reality, from the Parc Güell to the Casa Batlló through the Casa Milà and the Sagrada Família. Through a play of materials and lights, the Carrières de Lumières take the form of hyperbolic vaults, oblique pillars, undulating facades and are adorned with organic motifs and mosaics of glass and ceramics, to the rhythm of Gershwin’s musical curves.
Bosch, Brueghel, Arcimboldo: fantastic and wonderful (2017) invites the viewer to explore the teeming world painted by these great masters of the 16th century. From the most emblematic triptychs of Jerome Bosch such as The Garden of Delights or The Temptation of Saint Anthony, to the astonishing compositions of Giuseppe Arcimboldo made of flowers and fruit, via the village festivals of the Brueghel dynasty, the Carrières de Lumières opens up to the fascinating worlds of these three masters committed to depicting life, its movement, and all the duality of a world swinging between good and evil.
