In Praise of Emotion and In Praise of Sensibility is the result of an exemplary cooperation between the Nantes Arts Museum and the Rennes Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition is set up as a diptych (an exhibition at each museum) that establishes a perfect dialogue between the works from these complementary collections. Many of these paintings echo other works held within the FRAME network and show the universal cultural heritage that constitutes the collections of historical Brittany.
The Nantes Arts Museum and the Rennes Museum of Fine Arts present In Praise of Emotion and In Praise of Sensibility: 18th Century French paintings from Breton collections from February to May 2019. This original show is organized simultaneously by both institutions with a shared catalog.
