The Musée Jacquemart André is showing an exhibition devoted to Botticelli (1445-1510), one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. Through some forty works by the artist, together with a selection of paintings by his Florentine contemporaries, the show celebrates Botticelli's creative genius, as well as the widespread practice of artists of the time, that of working in their studio with their assistants. An event not to miss, from 10 September 2021 to 24 January 2022.
Edouard André, a 19th century collector, and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, a renowned portrait artist, travelled across Europe and the East to acquire rare works of art and furniture. The collections are some of the most remarkable in France: works from Flemish and German schools, detached frescoes, refined furniture and tapestries also find their place on the ground floor of the house. But Nélie Jacquemart devoted most of her attention to the Renaissance period in Florence and Venice. In fact, the first floor is devoted to Italian art during this period.
