Beyond the Stars; the new exhibition at the Orsay Museum is not to be missed

Beyond the Stars; the new exhibition at the Orsay Museum is not to be missed

 

Focusing on the mystical questions of artists who were active at the turn of the 20th century, this is a new reading of landscape painting offered by this major exhibition designed by the Musée d'Orsay in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto.

The elevation towards the infinite, the ordeal of the night, the quest for a reality beyond the physical and communion with the transcendent forces of nature. These and other mysteries of existence were contemplated by many artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries who, reacting against the tyranny of science and naturalism, sought to express their feelings through the medium of landscape painting and thereby evoke a mystical response in those who viewed their creations. Gauguin, Denis, Monet, Hodler, Klimt, Munch, Van Gogh and other European artists and the key representatives of the Canadian school of the 1920s and 1930s sought through their work to seek behind the material world to find a perfect unity with the cosmos.
