Exhibition “Désirs et Volupté” Victorian Masterpieces




The Jacquemart-André Museum

158, Boulevard Haussmann
75008 Paris

Exhibition from the 13th September 2013 to the 21st January 2014



The exhibition invites you to discover the artists famous in England during the reign of Queen Victoria in the 19th century, including Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912), Sir Frederic Leighton (1830-1896), Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) and Albert Moore (1841-1893). The fifty or so paintings exhibited reflect the common desire of the artists of this period to pay homage to the “cult of beauty” .

As the leading world power in the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901), Great Britain paved the way for extensive economic and social upheaval.  Against a backdrop marked by puritanism, the artists expressed a sensual aesthetic with paintings offering a sharp contrast to the severity and moralising attitudes of the day: a return to Antiquity, nude women, sumptuous decorative paintings and poetic and literary expression with medieval compositions,  a legacy from the Pre-Raphaelites.
