Feb. 13 – May 11, 2014
The Art of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden will present more than 100 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures by some of the most acclaimed European and American artists from the 17th to the 20th centuries. This glorious major exhibition explores the art, design and evolution of Paris’ famed Tuileries Garden and its impact on such artists as Camille Pissarro, Childe Hassam and many others. It also celebrates garden designer André Le Nôtre (1613–1700)—best known for his grand perspectives and symmetry at the chateaux gardens of Versailles—who transformed the Tuileries from an outdoor museum for French royalty into a French formal garden for Louis XIV. The Tuileries, which stretches from the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde in central Paris, was originally created in 1564 and became the city’s first public park in 1667. This special exhibition is co-organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Toledo Museum of Art and the Portland Art Museum, Oregon, with the exceptional collaboration of the Louvre.
