This exhibition, organised by Guy Cogeval of the Musee d'Orsay, showcases paintings, programs and prints with sound effects and occasional performances by actors, in a theatrical setting. Viewers move from room to room, like changing scenes in a play.
The periods covered include the French Revolution, French & English Romanticism, to the beginning of the 20th century; from 1789-1914. There are pieces on loan from all over the world including works from the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the V&A and Tate in London, and various galleries and private collections in Australia, US, UK, The Netherlands and Canada.
The gallery lent both The Anger of Achilles by J.-L.David, and Delaroche's Les Enfants d'Edouard (Edward V and the Duke of York in the Tower).
