from the 5/ 3/ 2013 until the 9 / 6/ 2013The Angel of the Odd. Dark
Romanticism from Goya to Max Ernst
The dark side of Romanticism was created in the English Gothic novels of the late 18th century, a genre of literature that fascinated the public with its penchant for the mysterious and the macabre. The visual arts quickly followed the writers to create horrifying and grotesque worlds: Goya, Géricault, Füssli, Delacroix.
Right in the middle of the second industrial revolution, hordes of witches, sniggering skeletons, shapeless devils, lecherous Satans and deadly enchantresses suddenly appeared, expressing a defiant, carnivalesque disillusionment with the present.

Clay courts slow the ball down and produce a high bounce when compared to grass and synthetic courts. As such, over the years, clay court specialists have evolved who often succeed here whilst higher ranked players may struggle.

Flesh and Marble
Over 60 marble statues, many of them from private collections, will be presented in this exceptional exhibition, Rodin, Flesh and Marble.
The question of the materials employed in art is not simply a matter of technique. A strong symbolic dimension is part of the choice, and so marble takes us back to Antiquity, to the myths of ancient Greece, and to Italy of the Renaissance through the figure of Michelangelo. Marble is also considered to be the material that most resembles the flesh.
