185 works of art from different eras, styles and countries are presented in an exhibition designed like a game of dominoes, where each work leads to the next by an association of ideas or forms. The creations of Boucher, Giacometti, Rembrandt, Man Ray, Annette Messager and other anonymous artists interact in a fun tour that revisits our traditional approach to art history.
Exhibition organised by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais
