The Golden Age of the english painting

The golden age of the english painting

from Reynolds to Turner

Exhibition from 11 September 2019 to 16 February 2020


This exhibition, showing a selection of masterpieces from Tate Britain, highlights a key period in the history of painting in England, from the 1760s to around 1820. It will present an overview capturing all the originality and diversity of this time. It takes the visitor from the founding of the Royal Academy, with artists such as Reynolds and Gainsborough, to the turning point in the early 19th century, notably with Turner. The public will rediscover the great classics of British art here, all too rarely exhibited in France.

Curators: Martin Myrone, chief curator, Tate, and Cécile Maisonneuve, doctor in History of Art, Rmn GP, associate curator for the presentation of the exhibition in Paris

Exhibition design: Jean-Paul Camargo - SALUCES

This exhibition was organised by the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais in partnership with the Tate.
