For 5 years now, the Paris Tableau show has been celebrating traditional painting, bringing you canvases from the Middle Ages right through to 1900. Twenty-four prestigious international galleries are presenting their best works in the intimate atmosphere of the Palais Brongniart. Baroque painting is appealing and interesting for the way light is portrayed and for its play of light and dark, as well as the richness of its colour palette and the theatrical nature of its settings. Religious and mythological subjects are very prominent, but portraits, landscapes, still life and genre scenes are also featured. This year, Paris Tableaux is exploring the theme of Fine Living through the eyes of Bruno Frisoni, the Artistic Director of the Roger Vivier house. We are invited to explore the universe of Roger Vivier through a reconstruction of his studio workshop, where the influence of the ancient masters and contemporary creation are closely linked.
