Meer ‘Black Models’ in Musée Marmottan Paris tot 21 juli 2019


Tegelijkertijd met de grote tentoonstelling in Musée d’Orsay, over zwarte modellen in de kunst vanaf ongeveer 1800 tot nu, loopt er een kleinere tentoonstelling over het Orientalisme in Musée Marmottan in Parijs. Een onderwerp waar talloze boeken over zijn geschreven door kunsthistorici en critici (ik heb er hier ook een paar staan).

Toch is de tentoonstelling interessant om te bezoeken want er zijn veel raakvlakken met de grote tentoonstelling in d’Orsay.  De tentoonstelling in Marmottan gaat over precies dezelfde periode en is ook hier is veel aandacht voor sub-Sahara personages en modellen.

L’Orient des peintres, du rêve à la lumière, werd gemaakt door: commissariat: Emmanuelle Amiot- Saulnier, Aurélie Gavoille, Laurène Marin, Anne Gratadour en Pierre Roch.

Hieronder een klein beeldverslag. Er is veel meer te zien.

About me EN:

In 2008 I was guest curator of the exhibition Black is beautiful. Rubens to Dumas. Important advisors: Elizabeth McGrath (Rubens and colleagues, Warburg institute Image of the Black in Western Art collection), Carl Haarnack (slavery in books), Elmer Kolfin (slavery in prints and paintings) en Adi Martis (contemporary art). Gary Schwartz made his research for The Image of the Black in Western Art available to me.

In 2014 my essay ‘Painted Blacks and Radical Imagery in the Netherlands (1900-1940)’ was published in The Image of the Black in Western Art Volume V (I). (ed. David Bindman, Henry Louis Gates jr.)

In 2017 I published a book about the black servants at the Court of the Royal Van Oranje family. More than a thousand documents have been found about their lives. (only in Dutch)
