Jan de Beer and assistant, ‘Adoration of the Magi’, c. 1515 © Private collection BIRMINGHAM.- Famous in his lifetime and for several generations after his death for his stylish and elegant paintings, Antwerp’s Jan de Beer (c. 1475 – 1527/28) created spectacular altarpieces that appealed to churches at home and abroad, copyists, patrons and collectors.

Greco au Grand Palais

PARIS - Cette rétrospective est la première grande exposition jamais consacrée en France à cet artiste. Né en 1541 en Crète, Doménikos Theotokópoulos, dit Greco, fait son premier apprentissage dans la tradition byzantine avant de parfaire sa formation à Venise puis à Rome. C’est cependant en Espagne que son art s’épanouit et s’implante durablement à partir de la décennie 1577. Attiré par les mirifiques promesses du chantier de l’Escorial, l’artiste importe dans la péninsule la couleur du Titien, les audaces du Tintoret et le style... [Lire la suite]
