Picturesque Imaginings

27 août au 30 octobre 2005

Defining the Photographic within Nineteenth-Century European Visual Culture
August 27, 2005 through October 30, 2005
This exhibition explores some of the complex exchanges that took place when early photographers drew upon the visual conventions of past art, and artists in turn contemplated the oddly still and undeniably "real" forms of the photograph.

Homer's Laughter: Honore Daumier's Ancient History

8 octobre 2005 au 15 janvier 2006

Defining the Photographic within Nineteenth-Century European Visual Culture
Six lithographs from Honorè Daumier's satirical series entitled Ancient History will complement the Legacy of Homer exhibition. Daumier mocks the noble classical ideal of mid-nineteenth century France in his comic depictions of episodes of the Iliad, the Odyssey and the French seventeenth-century novel The Adventures of Taelemachus.

Jacques-Louis Davids "Antiochus and Stratonice:"

The Poetics of French History Painting
Jacques-Louis David's preparatory oil sketch for Antiochus and Stratonice, on loan to the museum from a private collection, will be presented alongside his finished painting of 1774, from the collection of the École national supèrieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Prepared for David's fourth attempt to win the Grand Prix competition of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, these works finally brought him success and the reward of a five-year stay in Rome.

The Legacy of Homer

Four Centuries of Art from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris
The Princeton University Art Museum and the Dahesh Museum of Art in New York City are collaborating to bring to the United States the unprecedented exhibition The Legacy of Homer: Four Centuries of Art from the École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Presented first at the École in autumn 2004, the exhibition will include 133 objects, which will be divided between Princeton and the Dahesh. Organized by École curator Emmanuel Schwartz and coordinated at Princeton by Betsy Rosasco, research curator of later Western art, the exhibition explores the impact of the renowned poet Homer upon the finest French artists of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by examining the École's superb, yet little-known, collection of paintings and sculptures. France's leading art school once was widely known to possess a collection as fine as the Louvre's. The names in the checklist suggest their astonishing quality - Barye, David, Ingres, Poussin, and Rude, to name a few.

Homeric Themes in Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art

Also complementing the Legacy of Homer exhibition is a small selection of graphic works from the museum's permanent collection representing different interpretations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey by sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italian artists.

Chantal Akerman: 25ème écran (25th Screen)

19 novembre 2005 au 26 février 2006
25ème écran (25th Screen) by Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman is an intimate, single-monitor installation composed of a single tracking shot filmed along an urban street. Akerman, who made her first film in 1968, began producing art installations in the 1990s, often using her own films as a point of departure. 25ème écran is based on her 1993 film D'Est (From the East), shot in eastern Germany, Poland, and Russia. The image is accompanied by a cello solo of the Kol Nidre, a Jewish prayer recited on Yom Kippur, as well as a voice-over of Akerman reading a passage from Exodus that evokes the Jewish tradition's prohibition of images, followed by a description of her own impressions and working process during the filming. In 25ème écran Akerman elaborates on her own style of documentary, subverting the device of voice-over to question the capacity of film to serve as a transparent record of reality.
