Looking forward to 2021-2022
Yan Pei-Ming – In the Name of the Father
Unpublished exhibition extended until October 11, 2021
The Musée Unterlinden in Colmar, France, will present a major exhibition devoted to Yan Pei-Ming, the contemporary artist known around the world for his monumental, often monochromatic canvasses, painted with vigorous, sweeping brushstrokes.
It presents, quite exceptionally in France, a collection of more than fifty major paintings as well as a dozen drawings and watercolors from public institutions and private collections in Europe and China, and from the artist’s personal archive.
Têtes à têtes, Lucas Cranach the young / Collège Molière de Colmar
06 november 2021 to 07 february 2022
On 06 November 2021, the Musée Unterlinden will inaugurate an exhibition showcasing a series of portraits drawn by Lucas Cranach the Younger (1515-1586), one of the masters of the German Renaissance.
These 16th-century portraits of Saxony’s aristocracy will be juxtaposed with a series of photographic portraits of present-day men and women representing Culture in Alsace, taken by final-year students at Colmar’s Collège Molière middle school.
An exceptional loan
The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Reims has been closed since autumn 2019 for renovation and extension works but has chosen to remain in the limelight with the help of various external events. The Musée Unterlinden has benefitted from the exceptional loan from the museum’s collections of a series of thirteen portraits drawn in the mid-16th century by Lucas Cranach the Younger.
Due to the current health situation, programming for 2021/2022 may be subject to alterations. We will keep you informed of any changes.
