Guillaume Farroult, curator of the Louvre Museum and expert in French and British paintings of the 18th century, will give a lecture untitled “Revelations concerning the unknown origins of a secret and libertine work“on François Boucher’s painting L’Odalisque Brune.
Painted in 1765, this work was a part of a secret corpus of libertine paintings, characterizing a century of liberty and appetite for moral licentiousness. The lecture will attempt to retrace the genesis of this painting at the same time as it uncover the many meanings and functions belonging to a highly original work.
This event is presented by the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, and by the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies of the University of British Columbia, and by the Consulate General of France in Vancouver.
Free event, reception following the talk.
