Black Models: Géricault to Matisse

Many artists have immortalised black people in their work, often going against the typical representations of their respective periods. Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, the Musée d’Orsay’s Black Models: From Géricault to Matisse explores the portrayal of black figures in visual arts, from the late 18th century to the modern day.

This eye-opening exhibition examines artists’ crucial role in the challenging perceptions – and pre-conceptions – of race and ‘otherness’ across the centuries.
