Beauty, Morality and Voluptuousness...


Explore the "esthetic movement" thanks to this exhibition that,  in UK, during the second mid of 19th century, aimed to escape from ugliness and materialism of that time. Discover this exhibition in Orsay Museum Paris, until January, 15th, 2012.

Many painters, poets, set painter and designer, define a free art from moral and order principles and the Victorian morality of UK. All these painters, designers tent to be out of ugliness and anted to create an esthetic art. From the 1860's to 1901, when died Queen Victoria, this trend is studied from symbolic works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris, James McNeill Whistler, Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley. All joined in the same quest that associates artistic creation to "art de vivre" and that finds place of expressions in various fields as photography, decoratives arts, clothes and litterature.
