Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux Presents Two Collectons-One Passion

The painting "Rolla", by Henri Gervex, ca 1890 - Oil on canvas - Collection of Musee des Beaux Arts, Bordeaux

The Frac Aquitaine and the Bordeaux musée
des beaux-arts cross their views of their collections to mark the
acquisition of
new works by the Frac Aquitaine in 2009. They propose to shed new light
on a
selection of their works: old works viewed in the light of the present,
contemporary works seen as a reflection of the past. The complete
collection of
Frac Aquitaine’s 17 new acquisitions is being presented for the first
time in
contrast with 19 works from the musée des beaux-arts collection from
schools (French, Flemish, Italian, English) and different periods (from
the 17th
to the 20th century).
