The Musée d’Orsay is looking ahead to a time where we can study and experience art and culture within galleries and museums once more. The show that they have planned for the winter season is quite adventurous with a blend of art and natural history themes.
The exhibition The Origins of the World in Darwin’s Century looks at the changing perception and expression of man’s place in the world through ideas of creationist and developing arguments on evolution. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the scientific world in France at this time. It also brings a new perspective on works that we all know and love.
The collaborative effort with the Paris Muséum of Natural History should blend science and art together in a creative and informative way. Come and see how works of art celebrate and challenge ideas of the natural world when the show opening on November 10th.
