Early eighteenth century Paris. Shortly before the emergence of Rococo, Watteau caused a sensation in Paris salons with his sensual paintings. His work is all the more exceptional given that the painter lived a short yet full life. In collaboration with the Palais des Beaux-Arts Lille the Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels pays homage to this artist with an exhibition bringing together works from all over the world. One of the key themes of this exhibition is music. The renowned conductor and musician, William Christie, is the guest curator of this exhibition and will also perform in eight concerts featuring music by Watteau’s contemporaries. The outcome is an integrated arts experience and a parallel program of educational activities, lectures and an encounter with the author, Pierre Michon.
