The booking is closed
To celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), South African-born artist Marlène Dumas, who has lived and worked in the Netherlands since the mid-1970s, has created a series of paintings inspired by The Spleen of Paris. This series will be exhibited at the Musée d'Orsay this fall. As a counterpoint, "Conversations" will be presented, a dialogue of three key works by Marlene Dumas with works from the museum's collections.
