Joris-Karl Huysmans exhibition at Musée d’Orsay
From 26th of November until 1st of March 2020, the exhibition of the little known but extraordinary 19th century writer and art critic Joris-Karl Huysmans will be held at the Musée d’Orsay. Somewhat misunderstood by the general public in his day made him fade away into obscurity over the years. His contribution to the artistic press and the aesthetic debate was as decisive as the impact of his novel “à rebours”. With this exhibition we can once again discover the leading role Huysmans had in the world of art and how he navigated the various artistic currents of the late 19th century, from Degas to Grünewald.
