Add to my calendar 18-03-2017 30-04-2017 Europe/Paris Exhibition : Jean-Jacques Karpff - Strive for the sublime!

This presentation is the first exhibition dedicated to the draftsman and miniaturist Jean-Jacques Karpff (1770-1829). Native of Colmar and student of the painter David, he is dedicated to developing the arts in his home town, before making his career in Paris, where he becomes one of the most inventive and refined portraitists in the time of Napoléon.

In his drawings and in his miniatures, Karpff has been able to tie an intimate look to a perfect technical mastery. The exhibition will highlight the adventures of an artistic career between Colmar, Paris and Versailles and will reveal the exciting facets of a work evolving between neo-classicism and romanticism, between fine and applied arts.

Curators:
Viktoria von der Bruggen, Doctor of art history
Raphaël Mariani, Conservation officer at the Unterlinden Museum
