“PETIT TRAITÉ DU PAYSAGE”

 

 

The most prestigious exhibition of this program has for curator the director of Fonds National d’Art Comtemporain, Paris, France – Agnés de Gouvion Saint-Cyr.

Photography was announced in the beginning of the nineteenth century, a time when landscape painting tends to become a noble and privileged pictorial representation of change, by adopting similar models to new forms of expression. All along almost two centuries of its existence photography followed the representations of natural and urban areas, as well as the interactions therein operated. This exhibition aims at providing a synthesis of contemporary representation of the landscape by some of the most prestigious names of present days.
