13 Oct 2005 -16 Jan 2006. Melancholy: a tendency to be gloomy and depressed but also an inspiration for countless artists through time. This exhibition invites the visitor to discover different takes on the concept. Some 250 works by major artists like Drer, Poussin, Goya, Delacroix, Rodin and Picasso are displayed, along with ancient steles and sculptures. They constitute various representations of Western melancholy, demonstrating how this feeling, once considered sacred, has shaped the European genius. In connection with the exhibition, the Auditorium des Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais is putting on lectures and concerts on Wed at 18.00.
