PARIS EXHIBIT ON THE “WILD” SIDE

 

Beauty, Morals and Voluptuousness in the England of Oscar Wilde

Gabriel DANTE ROSSETTI

 

This exhibition explores the British "aesthetic movement" that, in the second half of the 19th century, set out to move away from the ugliness and materialism of the time, by proposing a new idealisation of art and beauty.

Edward BURNE-JONES

 

The movement is seen through the eyes of the British artists writers, and poets of the time including Oscar Wilde, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, James McNeill Whistler, and Aubrey Beardsley.
