People visiting Paris this summer will be able to visit the Musee d’Orsay to see an exhibition of collages by the great modern artist Max Ernst.
The display will be open for people on Paris tours to visit from June 30th to September 13th.
Ernst was born in 1891 and was greatly influenced by the proliferation of unusual and striking images that appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, advertisements and other media from the second half of the 19th century onwards.
Between 1933 and 1936, the artist used a broad selection of illustrations, graphics, book covers and other pieces to create his own book, which had no text and consisted of a section for every day of the week.
The collection of collages will arrive at Paris’ Musee d’Orsay following a tour that has already taken it to Bruhl, Hamburg and Madrid.
Until July 19th this year, visitors to the famous museum will also be able to see a series of exhibitions inspired by the art and architecture of Italy, exploring subjects including Ernest Hebert’s artistic interest in Italian peasants.
