Museum Visit

As a member of the NAROMA Art Society my artist friends and I enjoyed a visit to a collection of paintings at a museum in Germany last Saturday. 

The 19th century French painter Jean Gigoux not only collected his own works but also precious paintings ranging from famous renaissance artists to his contemporaries. He later donated his collection to the museum at Besançon. More than a 100 paintings and 90 drawings were on loan from France with works by Mantegna, Cellini, Breughel, van Dyck and others including David, Delacroix and Géricault.

The exhibition titled “From Cranach to Géricault” was presented in the most attractive fashion with generous displays and most informative wall inscriptions to tell about the artists and the paintings.
