Ready to Join?

You are warmly invited to visit the latest exhibition - Héroïnes romantiques at the Musée de la vie romantique with fellow InterNations members.

Presentation of the exhibition:

Who are the heroines of romanticism and how are they shown in art in the 19th century?

Through displaying a selection of some one-hundred works - paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, and objets d’art – the exhibition invites the public to discover heroines that romanticism reinterpreted or invented: Heroines of the past, Heroines in fiction, and Heroines on stage.

This progression in three phases lets us weave links between the Fine Arts, literature, and the dramatic arts which in the 19th century played a major role in diffusing a feminine heroism with tragic undertones.

In the form of a collective work with thematic headings the exhibition catalogue brings history and history of art together to cast a multi-disciplinary light on how romantic heroines are depicted.

Please kindly book your tickets for the 14h30 slot so that we can enjoy the visit together. We will grab a tea/coffee together afterwards if the weather permits.
