Curator in Conversation

Between Impressionism and Orientalism: Félix Ziem


14 December 2016 / 18:30 Past Activity

Lucienne Del’Furia, one of the co-curators of the exhibition Félix Ziem: Wanderer on the Sea of Light will take a closer look into Félix Ziem, one of the most original landscape painters of the 19th century. Long forgotten by art historians after his death in 1911, the artist was hailed as a forerunner of impressionism and as a pre-impressionist. This presentation will explore Ziem’s life as well as his creative process and present new angles into his work.

Lucienne Del'Furia is a graduate of the Louvre School, the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne and the National Institute of Heritage. She was the curator of the museum of underwater archeology and then took on the responsibility for the cultural heritage of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Since her arrival in 2006 as the director of the Ziem Museum, she has presented several exhibitions on Ziem and has contributed to many books on this artist.

Free of admissions, limited seats.
The talk is in French with Turkish consecutive translation.
