"Eugene Jansson (1862-1915)"
1999-05-18 until 1999-08-22
Musee d'Orsay
Paris, , FR France

ansson spent all his life in Stockholm, the town he loved and of which he painted splendid panoramas. From his workshop in the heights of Mariaberget, he commanded an exceptional view over its islands and stretches of water. Particularly sensitive to the strange blue aura the city emanated at night, he chose one colour for his landscapes : blue. Music was undoubtedly another source of inspiration, and he entitled several of his paintings Nocturne , after Chopin, his favourite composer. After 1904, he dealt with a new subject : the male nude. These paintings caused a sensation due to their origiginality, but their ambiguity attracted harsh criticism - never since antiquity had athletes bodies been scrutinized in such a way. Unknown outside Sweden, Jansson was a singular artist, bold and innovative. Prone to depression, he charted a strange career, haunted by night, desire and death. Curator Henri Loyrette, general curator, director, Musée dOrsay Exhibition organised with the help of the Swedesh Ministry of Culture
