Those pieces of art were part of an wonderful exhibition that I went to see in The Musée du Quai d’Orsay in Paris a few month ago. The theme was ” the dark romantism, from Goya to Ernst”, and gathered paintings, scuptures, engravings from 1800’s to 1950’. Dark and intense, surprising, it was the kind of exhibition were you could’nt stay indifferent.
