2015-06-08 18:15:00 Tudors exhibition at Musée du Luxembourg
June will bring us a delightful visit of the exhibition "Les Tudors" at Musée du Luxembourg. Our guide will be Contessa Monique Riccardi-Cubitt, an acclaimed art historian, lecturer, journalist, author and poet. The guided visit will be in English.
The exhibition is the first in France to be devoted to the Tudors and has been organised in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery in London, which has lent many of the portraits exhibited. It focuses on the image which the Tudors sought to project of themselves and also the diplomatic and artistic exchanges between France and England during the period, as well as explaining the later interest which they aroused in French artists and dramatists.
The price for paid-up members of OUSP will be €12 pp, for members' guests and any other non-members €20 pp. If you would like to join us, please contact Carol Amouyel Kent.
